Some time ago I spoke about a Concertina sketch book project that I entered in with six online friends all of whom are artists in their own right. A lot has happened since then. I got and drew in some of those Concertina sketchbooks.
A lot has happened since then. My own sketch book got lost in transit and so did Sandy’s. Our friend Pavinee was kind enough to start new back-up books on our behalf and they are on their way half way across the globe. Today I thought I will share with you what I have been drawing. Since we had promised not to share complete works, I only going to share a sneak peek and not mention which art work is for whose book.
I must admit , I am thrilled to see how well these books have been crafted and packaged , some came with a note attached and some came with a theme but all did what they were supposed to
They forced me to think about my own style of drawing and subjects that i choose and how I choose to draw them.
I must also mention observing other people’s work and styles has been an inspiration. It has been good 4 months since we started and we have been able to connect as artists and as friends. Just going over these snippets here has made me realize that I already have drawn in four sketch books and there remain only two more to come my way.
I am waiting for my own concertina book to complete its journey so that I will have works of my artist friends to keep.
May 12th is Mother’s day. During my drawing practice last week I drew a series of caricatures based on real women in my life and their kids.
I think it is true for a lot of women (atleast its true for me ) that motherhood changes their identity, definitely adds another dimension. Motherhood has inspired art, changed career directions and birthed many a wonderful blogs. Happy mother’s day!
Hope you all have a wonderful time with your loved one!
Okay, so last time I posted the image of this shepherd boy praying under the tree, I decided I wanted to simplify.
so I went a different route and zoomed out a bit to include more of the background. I reduced the detail in the tree, added the fields in the distance and brought back my familiar sun from the last picture.
I also came up with one last option. I am still unsure what colour combination works better. harvested yellow orange fields or the still green fields?
As always , I appreciate the feedback. Related posts:
