You may recall my recent dilema with choosing an art class ^_^ I went for sketchbook delight and I am very happy I did. I think I will take the watercolour class once Im done though. I’ve already filled a sketchbook.. well, finished one. It helped that the paper was so rubbish I could only do one page spreads! My second sketchbook is a proper watercolour sketchbook so it’s a little sturdier. I thought I would show you my work from the beginning…
Starting with my Michael Nobbs ‘Start to Draw your Life‘ work…
Random every day drawings from march time.
In the last image I went a bit Keri Smith on it and her explorer of the world, but my world is limited so thats my knee :p
and then i got the cold and lost my mojo for a while!
I really wanted to work with colour so i tried to paint a butterfly that I have.. a pink one. One of those feather jobs. Just using watercolour and a white gel pen.
I then tried to draw some fabric patterns but fluffed it up completely.. didn’t go so well.
Then I was experimenting with different washes and paints that I had. Then I gave up pretty much until my Art Class dilema!
oOo and also!! Never waste your time buying white gel pens or paint markers… totally crap. The best thing is either Acrylic artists Ink and a nib/dip pen or tip ex pens.
Working on some homework ^_^ I highly recommend the class.
Lots of love Claire xo
