Day 2 of Art Prompts

Today I continued with the class mentioned the other day , and tackled the second prompt on the list: "drink". Decided to draw my usual morning brew, which is black tea. This time I used my favourite mug, which is a ceramic travel mug from T Bar, that I use without the safety lid, since I'm not traveling anywhere, so there is no danger of spilling anything. :)  The first is a sketch of my mug as seen from above. Here's a couple of process pics: Then I started sketching the mug as seen from the front. More process pics below: Next is the paper bag that my tea came in, which is actually drawn in real size (the other sketches are not). Of course, my cat decided to come and join me at some point and I didn't have the heart to move her away to take the pics. :) I started sketching my coconut milk also, but haven't finished it yet. I had to take a break at some point (I was tired and my eyes were stinging) and actually took a nap with the cat. :) I might finish it t

Sketching a Pansy in Coloured Pencils

A few days ago I started working on a small sketch of a pansy in coloured pencils. Today I finished it and I thought I'd share some of the process here, on my blog. 

 

I don't actually have that many pics of the drawing process this time, but I did film the whole thing. :D Soo... there might be a YouTube video documenting it sometime in the future. :) :D Well, at least I hope it will: it depends on many factors (the quality of the footage, the editing process, all the other technical things that go into making a YouTube video which I am not that familiar with, since I haven't made any yet. :) (Well, I did, once, 5 years ago or so, but I have never actually uploaded it anywhere.)

 

Anyway. It's a tiny sketch (A6). I just wanted to see how the whole thing goes, especially with the filming part, so I decided to try something small first. Plus, I was thinking to use it as a hero image/focal point for one of my art journal spreads afterwards, so there was no point in doing a bigger drawing. (I might film that too. :D)


I used a combination of Faber Castell (Polychromos) and Derwent (Coloursoft, Studio, Lightfast and Procolour) coloured pencils, plus one of those colourless pencils used for blending and burnishing (Koh-I-Noor Hardmuth Polycolor 3800/ 0). And, of course, I did a graphite pencil sketch before everything else first. :)

And... that's about it. I will just leave you with the pics. And I will let you know whenever I finish that YouTube video I was talking about (if I ever finish it, lol :). Enjoy! 




P.S. I forgot to mention that I used this image by MrGajowy3 from Pixabay as a reference.
