Prompt disco. I had to google mirror ball to see what they looked like for the sketch. This was a fun challenge. I used pen and markers for colour.
Prompt pastels. I doodled the flowers and coloured them with Pan pastels. The background was coloured with a conte pastel and blended to make it smooth.
Prompt clouds. I sketched some clouds and filled in the patterns, then used a little bit of markers for colour. Some tips I have learned for drawing clouds are:
- keep the bottom of the cloud flatish
- cloud shapes are taller on one side and trail away to nothing on the other end
- if you are adding colour they are usually grey on the bottom and white on top
- have a look at clouds in the distance and take note of their shape
Prompt Found poetry. I had to look up found poetry to find out what it was. I picked a page from a Dean Koontz book because he uses the most descriptive phrases and words. I had to scan the page and reduce it to get it to fit onto the card. I then picked out my poem and used acrylic paint to cover the words that I didn't want to be seen. I doodled in some butterflies to go with the poem.
Prompt crossword. I tried to only use words that related to ICAD but I had too many black spaces to fill so I added some random words as well. This one took much longer than I wanted.
Prompt Jar. A whimsical style that I have used a few times since starting this challenge. I find it amusing that I have never used this style before.
Prompt stapled collage. I found the sketch of the desk in a magazine and used it with a wallpaper photo. I doodled some of the flowers from the wallpaper across the card. The words come from another magazine.
I am going to miss this challenge when it finishes next week. I will not stop creating art though.
