Week 3 is done and finished! And I’m still enjoying the daily challenge (and the weekly challenge too).
I made a mix of inchies and twinchies again this week. It’s fun to do several days of inchies, which are so tiny and then do a couple of twinchies and feel like I have SO MUCH space to work on. Ha Ha
I made a couple of map ones as I am working on my map ATCs for the monthly blog challenge and figured I’d do some inchies as well.
I like mixing up the techniques and the materials used. Some are paper, some are fabric, some are painted, some are stamped, some are drawn, some are layered, etc.
I also completed my weekly sketch. I used a photo again, which I prefer doing. This photo of this cute little boy squinting into the sunshine and all dressed up in his 3-piece denim suite was too adorable to pass up. He had his thumbs hooked into the pockets of the jacket, but I couldn’t quite do the hands yet. Perhaps by the end of the year I’ll be able to draw hands and fingers, but for now I just generally sketched the idea of hands in.
I definitely need more contrast and shading, but I think it looks like a little boy, although a bit cross-eyed. He had one arm kind of jutted out and I tried to draw it that way, but it looks a little wonky I think.
Are you working on your 365 days of art challenge? What are you doing? How do you feel about it?
Feel free to share photos and links here or on facebook or instagram. Use #bts365days to tag your work so we can find each other. I know we all want to share and be supportive.
