I’ve waited years for this day – now I can sit back and have cake brought to me without having to bake it myself…
Today we went to a fab Big Draw event at Prema Arts Centre run by Hannah Dyson, Eve Coy and Will Becher – and made twizzly things!
Today I didn’t find time to draw anything, so for #inktober I’m posting a scrap of paper that started as I doodled a few characters then got reused as a palette as I tested out different inks last week.
Sometimes I think there’s more life in these scraps than in the finished pieces – I overlap colours as I test them in a way I daren’t try in something I’m going to show people. So…maybe I need to see if I can bring some of that into my artwork.
Today I passed a woman taking her dog for a walk IN A BUGGY. He (she?) was wearing a cone round his/her neck.
(In fact she was arranging a rain cover over him but I thought that wouldn’t make such a good picture).
Today’s random colour was a plastery kind of light pink, I couldn’t think of a way to use it as a main colour (in a short space of time) so I used it for this ice cream instead.
Today’s sketch was a quick one as I was sitting on the sofa and using pens and enjoying watching Beauty and the Beast…so I didn’t use a random colour, just the pens I had.
The random colour today was brown, I think I might use it more often now.
