Only a little over a week and a half until ICAD wraps up. I think I will miss working on the cards but it will give me a chance to catch up on some of the other classes I have been doing. I have come to realise the challenge has inspired me in ways that no other classes have done. I didn't think I could draw very much before I started this but that has changed with each card I have completed.
I also didn't think I had very many ideas for different types of art but that too has changed. The prompts really inspire me to try anything. If I can't draw something I just look it up on Google. There are so many free drawing lessons on the net that I always find something that will suit me. It has also made me rethink the online lessons I have been paying for. More on that later.
Here are the cards for this week. The overall theme I went with was Nature.
Prompt magenta. My first card this week was inspired by the prompt. For some reason I always think of water lilies when magenta is mentioned.
Prompt raindrops. I used watercolor and googled water splash to find out how to draw it. I drew two types here.
Prompt ocean. I saw a drawing of an ocean on life book that inspired this card. The dolphin is something I have learned to draw recently.
Prompt bicycle. I didn't want to draw the whole bicycle so I stuck with the wheel. The vine is simple. The leaves are just one brush stroke with another colour added when half dry. The flowers are one drop of pink, then a dab of red into the center of the pink. When they were still wet I put one dot of white pen into the middle which ran into the red by accident.
Prompt faux quilt. I used the foil paper from Lifebook earlier in the year to make this card. I stitched the card with pen.
Prompt snowman. Another watercolour and pen sketch. I have never seen snow.
Prompt zodiac. The easiest Zodiac to paint I thought would be Libra.
