Hi there how are you?
Autumn is here, September is over and the nights are drawing in, time to break out the woolly hats, gloves and scarves.
1st of October is pinch punch post day. (A twitter monthly challenge) It slipped my mind completely last month so I forgot to draw or post anything! This month though I’m ready, the theme is gecko.
I drew one, thought it was kind of cute so I drew another. The brown one is a baby gecko not sure what species. The red one is a leaf-tail gecko, looks like he’s found lunch hehehe.
We had a lovely sunny day this week so I took out my little stool some painting gear, and set about painting a pot of pansies.
This pot of pansies is the only one remaining, I’m afraid the slugs got the rest (little perishers!) At least there’s still some colour left in the garden.
This pot used to be full of weeds; I left them in there because I thought they looked pretty and drew it ages ago for a sketchbook skool class I had taken, you can see it here. It was interesting to see the difference in both paintings.
It’s October or should I say Inktober,(you can find out about inktober here) I can’t believe it’s been a year since the last one. Where does the time go?
I wasn’t going to participate this year; I’m in a bit of a slump lately and really need to push myself to do anything arty at all, the prompts weren’t filling me with inspiration either so I thought I’d give it a rest this time.
Then I had the idea that I could do a bit of Chinese brush painting (that’s ink right?) and suddenly I’m feeling excited to get going again. I’ve borrowed some books from the library so I’ll follow these and hopefully inspiration won’t be a problem.
It will be interesting to see what the carefully placed intentional brush strokes of Chinese brush painting could do for both my watercolour and drawing skills.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by today. Till next time, have fun x
