So what's with 365 Days of art?
It's all about inspiration and a love of creating. I create five pieces of art a week, filling my sketchbook to the brim with inspiration, crafts, doodles and drawings. Challenged yourself with me, or just get some great art ideas for a one-off project. I'm taking my tasks from the fabulous artist and art author Lorna Scobie.
I also have one of those Instagram accounts, all the kids are on about. If you like what I do, then head on over and give us a like, you'll never miss out that way.
This week We've got a How-To with cute little birds, I draw something I love, we get 'quotey with it' and lots more.
Task; Create a flock of birds.
Hello colour, I've missed you. I'm a big monochrome girl, as you might have sussed, but I've gone wild with today's break down. I love these little creations so much! I think you will too.
Just remember to let the paint dry after each stage, and use a thick black pen for the outlines, the one I used was a Uni pen 0.5.
Task; Draw something that you love.
Wading around in sentimentally is not something I've famous for, and initially, I was going to draw my writing notebook. But a wave of mush hit me hard, and before I knew it I was drawing a pencil sketch of me and mine. It hasn't turned out the greatest, my husbands face isn't quite right and I've somehow knocked a few years off my daughter. If only it were that easy in real life, she's heading towards her teenage years with disgusting speed. But not bad for a sketch done in little over an hour.
Task: Write an interesting conversation.
So you'd think this would be a piece of piss... not so. Working from home and therefore joining that strange and pasty group of 'only leaving the house to head off scurvy', it's harder than you think to overhear anything, let alone anything interesting. Luckily I have the foresight to write things down and children are freaking gold mines when it comes to unintentionally adorable.
Task: Colour the plants.
Keeping it real with some year 6 level colouring in here folks. Bow to me.
Task: What activities make you feel relaxed? Draw or write it here.
It may have escaped your notice but... I'm a author. So what gets my jelly jiggling is the written word. Being lead by the first sentence all the way towards that last page, I am a zealous worshipper of words. I love them all, 'gusset' not so much but you can't love everything. So here is one of the greatest writers there ever was with some sage advice.
That's it folks
Join me next week when I mess around with a sunflower collage, Vines and watercolours. I also show you how to paint the sea in three simple steps.
But if you can't wait, here is where it all began with Week 1.
