woyww - sketchbook pics


This week I haven't got around to taking a photo of my desk but I do have photos of what has consumed my weeks.

I started Sketchbook skool on the 4th of April and so far I have completed a class with Danny Gregory and used his example of starting with a coloured wash, then paint and drawing using  black ink (iPhone). No pencil or eraser allowed.   The leek was an ink drawing with a colour wash.  I am so pleased with my leek that I had to write "a leek"!  DH rolls his eyes "stating the obvious" he mumbled...  But, I think it is a fantastic and very cooperative leek.
Second week of class was with Koojse Koene and her style is all about using coloured pencils.  Well I had to go and dig out pencils from the kids cupboard.  I bit time consuming and not the smoothest of finishes.  But in the end I was quite pleased with the result.
The teachers share some ideas and talk about the style they use at this stage not a lot of technique being taught.  Week 3 this friday and I look forward to a different teacher and hopefully a different style again.    Hope you woyww is going well and I will slowly visit over the easter weekend.

  4. Oh wow! I am so impressed with your artistic talent ... especially as I can't draw for toffee!!! And who would have thought that a leek could look so good, I like it a lot. Can't say I missed your desk at all ... it is such a pleasure to see your paintings instead :) Wishing you a wonderful Easter weekend. Elizabeth x #50

  6. As someone else who couldn't draw a straight line, I am blown away by your artwork. Awesome, all of it. Well done you for going for it. I'd be terrified not to have a pencil and eraser! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #34 xxx

  7. Love your samples - they look like "proper art" and I am a bit envious of your talent. I can barely scribble anything that looks real. The leek is really nice. Sounds like a fun class. Look forward to seeing more sample....
    Better late than never :)
    Happy WOYWW!

  16. Well, there's nothing better at all than a co-operative leek, now is there! It's wrongful, and I think a lot of it's success has been overlooked..the shadow you have it sitting in is fab in terms of giving it dimension.
