Friday Catch Up - 7Jan22

Sketchbook Revival New Year Challenge with daily prompts from Sarah Simon

 Day 1 - Ranunculus - continuous pen line drawing

Day 2 - Cosmos - coloured pencil sketch

Day 3 - Rose - pencil and fine line pen drawing

I thought I would paint one too

Day 4 - Lily - Dip pen and ink
I used Dr P H Martin Bombay Inks

I tried painting with the inks but they don't blend like watercolours

Day 5 [last day] Dahlia - Mixed Media
I used pencil, eraser!, pen, watercolours and Inktense blocks and pencils.
I found this flower the biggest challenge, I kept losing my place and I'm sure a lot of the petals are in the wrong place. But I don't think I would have attempted copying a dahlia flower before this.

Watercolour Sketches

 Happy New Year.

I thought I'd start the new year by trying to keep up with the Doodlewash watercolour challenge.

I'm also doing the Sketchbook Revival 5 day New Year Challenge, photos next time.

Friday Catch Up 24Dec21

My Granddaughter likes dressing up so I thought I would alter a small bag of mine that I don't use. I painted it with acrylics. I didn't come out like I had it in my mind, I was in a rush and didn't plan it out on paper like I should have. I decided to leave the strap as it was just in case the paint comes off.

This is the original bag.

Happy Christmas to anyone that celebrates.
