Looking forward to where this challenge pushes me. As a novice artist I am absorbed in the process, and loving each moment.
Day 2 with Cloud Watching (above) was a struggle, I always see things in the real clouds but when it came to my little closed-eye scribbles I just saw a mess. Will work at this exercise more.
Feelin' Slow was all about the touch and how slowly moving the brush pen felt on the texture of the paper. It was tough pushing myself to go slow.
Day 4 (above) is Shake it Up using my Posca Pens. Not really pleased with this one but I simply went with the mood and used loads of energy. Looks a little like the side of a Piñata! Go figure.
And Day 5 is Metamorphosis
I do wish I had stopped earlier on this one, kept it a little smaller, simpler. Oh well.
Metamorphosis 2 was all about filling the page. What? No way. Here you go.
My Crowd of Creatures ended up looking like evil CATS!!! They do make me giggle and I am fearful of turning my back on them......
Day 8 - Colours
We were asked to follow our mood and I was sad. A death in my extended family. MND. A family left with a huge hole in it. People feeling lost, desperately trying to hang on but wanting to let their loved one go........ bloody hideous disease.
A simple setting the table for tea for Day 9's Flatten it Out
Thread for Day 10. Used an orange/gold pen that was running out of ink and was really happy with some of the lines created.
Transform. Mmmmmm......I tried to improve a doodle made with my eyes closed. This still needs more practice but I am not put off with this technique.
Day 12 with Structure. I am a surface pattern designer so patterns are my joy. I often admire the brickwork of buildings - the patterns, textures, strength.
Day 14 with Texture. This is my interpretation of the texture from a towel. I took the photo with Adobe Capture and then used that as inspiration. The process mixed rapid and slow movements with my brush pen. Interesting process.
Many thanks to Marie-Noëlle for such a fun and interesting way to explore drawing. As a novice I found it extremely helpful. And the David Lynch quote was a perfect way to end your lessons.
