Here is another Christmas tree – this one made of tarpaulin painted white, with a star made of recycled plastic bottles…it stands in the entrance area to where we live. The blue bit is a little entrance to the inside where workers were going in and out finishing off making it. For a change today I began with the watercolour and used a dip pen for the ink bits.
Today I did a quick sketch of whatever happened to be in front of me, after reading up on the next project I’ll be working on. Still using a UniPin pen and watercolour, but tomorrow…maybe a slightly different approach.
I thought I’d draw my youngest daughter today when she got home from school (UniPin pen and watercolour) – not snoozing but scrolling through social media on her phone. I think I prefer the one I did yesterday.
When my daughters come home from school it’s my favourite time of day – not only because I love them, but because I can draw them! Our eldest, Louisa, is exhausted every day and usually has a nap on the couch before beginning homework, so I drew her again today using a UniPin pen and watercolour.
Super-quick doodle of a water jug late last night – tried using water-soluble pencil and watercolour rather than ink as my current sketchbook seems to prefer that!
Here is the only drawing in chalk pastel that I did yesterday at a life drawing session, that I was satisfied with. The rest were all a bit off – still I haven’t done this for 20+ years, so I just need to practice more!
After far too many years away, yesterday evening I joined a life drawing session at Warehouse 8, organized by “Whoaremaro“. Here are some of the quick pencil sketches I did. Really enjoyed getting back to it, but felt extremely rusty!
Here is the piano in SM Aura mall that plays itself (technically called a Pianola) – today it was roped off in a corner as the over the top Christmas decorations have taken centre stage. I used ink and watercolour for this – couldn’t get the ink to make it black enough though!
Christmas is well and truly here in the Philippines – orange Christmas trees next to plastic palm trees – what could be more festive? I did this sketch in ink and water-colour at the local mall (called Market Market!)…still getting used to my new sketchbook!
I painted this in my usual watercolour and ink to test out the first page in a new sketchbook (a Monologue) – it has heavy paper but is not very absorbent and is textured. I think it’s going to take a while to get used to it! Missed a drawing yesterday, so will post two today.
