I hadn’t yet seen the latest Creativity Carnival entry from honestme363 when making today’s sketch but loved the poem … our very different responses perhaps share an expressive similarity, coincidentally, aside from both being responses to this Shafali’s challenge. Can you spot it?
I’m also taking part in a twitter event, #Drawing August and today’s quick sketch is my third response entry in each of these creative challenges 😀
I quite like the idea of using this sketch (less annotations) to make some kind of colourful abstract composition… if I get around to it… SOME TIME… something fun, experimental and carnivalesque perhaps… probably not be this week though!
So, using the picture prompt and time of 3;40pm today as my deadline for my goal of drawing a Pocket Watch sketch of my own, but just for once being early by over an hour. Below, here’s Shafali’s fantastic Pocket Watch picture prompt (click here to visit this week’s challenge page)
So far for the #DrawingAugust challenge I’m working on simply making some kind of effort to draw again, being very out of practice. Shafali’s tagline ‘Draw to smile’ is encouraging 😀 so I’ve been keeping it in mind while wondering what to draw. I’d wanted to draw this cardigan pocket while looking down at myself yesterday but played with other stuff instead.
(yes I really was dressed in a quite thick warm cardigan on a sunny summer afternoon with indoor room temperature of 24 degrees C – I’m cold now having taken it off having noticed the room stat display and deciding it MUST be too warm to be wearing a cardigan!)
I’m using a small pocket notebook for these quick sketches although I might get into some ‘proper drawing’ along the way. I want to continue and finish this daily drawing challenge so am keeping my self-expectations very small and just having fun. My theme for this week is (no stress! with) ‘nothing much and nothing finished’! I’m also more interested in ideas, process, resource efficiency, practice and dialogue than in ‘making nice/good drawings’ – my excuse and I’m sticking with it 😉
