I’ve been working on this commission of a beautiful cat.
Last month I was hard at work with a large ballpoint pen drawing of JP Joule for the #MadeForSale exhibition.
I wanted to create different textures with the ballpoint pen to show the smoothness of the statue and then more texture with the feathers on Colin (corvid)
The exhibition is on until 5th August at the Waterside Arts Centre.
Here is a work in progress shot and the finished piece.
This is the last days’ artwork from the 14 day drawing challenge and the theme was movement. We were allowed to choose from a selection of images and this one really captured my eye. The first couple of sketches were done in 60 seconds and 5 mins and the full piece took 1 hour to complete. This was one of my favourite drawings of the challenge.
Here are days 6-9 of the drawing challenge. I loved the different themes but have to admit I have a soft spot for animals. All the drawings were done within 60 seconds, 5 mins and 60 mins timed slots.
I’ve recently joined a challenge by United Art Space to draw for 14 consecutive days in February. They provide the photos (which is a real treat and I look forward to daily), there are also a few time options of which I have chosen 60 seconds, 5 mins & 60 mins sketches.
Here are my drawings for the first 5 days, the themes were:
Day 1 – Contrast Day 2 – Tone Day 3 – Composition Day 4 -Negative space Day 5 – Shadow
Thank you to Taton Tubbs who provide the images and United Art Space for the great challenge. Looking forward to sketching some more.
