Day 2 – Passion

Putting colour on a blank surface and nature, that´s what I love. So here are both combined in this prompt for World Watercolor Month.

It´s Raining Cats and Dogs

That expression came to mind when I looked out the window this morning. So naturally I felt like drawing a funny dog as the sketch of the day. Trying to get back into the habit of sketching daily.

I also felt curious of where the expression comes from and turns out it is not quite clear.

Reference image of this funny dog is from Pinterest.

This is what happens when you want to use all your new coloured pencils at once. A coloured mess.

Oh well. At least I tried them all out. I will try again. But I am also on the way to buy a few more coloured pencils. Just in love with them!

#OneWeek100People2019 – Day 4

Finished colouring in Day 4 of last weeks 100 people challenge. It was sunny that day for a change, therefore the lack of umbrellas. I used mainly Pinterest images for reference as I prefer being comfortable on the couch while sketching.

I will be heading to Crete for the next week. So the rest will have to wait until I am back in Athens.

Happy Easter holiday everyone!

#OneWeek100People2019 – Day 3-5

So the One Week 100 People challenge finished. I made it to around 80, not counting the little shadows in the background. So with them I think I got the 100!

Started off rather tense and stressed of how and what to draw but I think I got more loose during the week. I think I also got a hang on how to draw feet and hands a little bit better and a better idea about people´s movement in general. So all in all I think this was a great success and great practice that I should do more often!

Any suggestions for another similar challenge out there? I need a bit of preasure to get motivated.

I will finish the remainder of people this weekend. I also want to colour them in and work on my watercolouring a bit.

 

#OneWeek100People2019

It´s been a bit since the last post. Have been busy with visitors and locals roaming around Athens. The bit of time I had in between I was either at aerial hoop practice or tried myself on the #OneWeek100People2019 challenge.  I thought it is a great opportunity to actually force myself to practice to draw people, something I am usually too lazy to.

It was pissing rain at the beginning of the week, that´s where the inspiration came from.

I have made it to about 60-70  by now… not sure if I manage to get to 100 by tomorrow… lets see…
