Well, I will give it my best shot anyways. Tonight are the two turtle doves. It’s a very sketchy drawing done in my lovely handmade art journal.
I’m referring to improving myself as an artist, that is. Tonight was a bit self reflective. I was thinking about the work in progress I started last night and how, even a year ago, I wouldn’t have dared sharing it online let alone being happy with it. And now? After almost a year of constantly sharing (perhaps some might say, oversharing), and creating, and drawing, and making, I’m feeling pretty good. Good about sharing what I’ve made. Good about what I’ve made. Happy and pleased it’s the results (most of the time). And when thugs don’t turn out? I’m ok sharing that too.
In case you were wondering, last night’s picture.
Some days we do small art in between crowds of people at the store. Today, I did this little zentangle.
A zentangle drawing for tonight.
Last night’s was done while waiting for clas to start. I was going to say these are quick little arts to do but, depending on how complex I make them, they’re actually not that quick. What they are though, is less messy than an art journal page. Sometimes I don’t feel like pulling out all the things to make a big, elaborate art piece so these are nice to do on those days.
I decided I wanted to do tonight’s girl from behind. Not a perspective I’m an expert in at all. I don’t think it turned out bad for a first attempt but I definitely need work.
I knew I wanted to draw this one from behind and I thought who better to depict from behind than a mermaid? I think the skin turned out neat – she’s no little mermaid, more like a siren who lured sailors to their death in the depths. I think that my favourite part though turned out to be her hair. Super textured and fun, full of pearls and gems and seaweed.
Did another of these hybrid pages tonight.
The pages are basic. Ink drawings with a touch of colour and washi tape. The washi tape adds another fun touch. Good thing I have so much, I can mix it up with that!
I’m pretty excited, it’s been a while! The thing is though, I’ve cleaned it up and now I don’t want to make a mess in it again. So I did a drawing tonight instead.
A little zentangle owl in my drawing journal. I would say it was a quick drawing but really, those little dots took a long time!
Just a small drawing tonight of a tree.
A quick pen sketch in my small drawing journal. In all the things I’ve drawn, I’m actually surprised I haven’t done a tree yet.
A little pink elephant who lost her balloon that I doodled up in class tonight.
