Speed painting anyone?! This was the assignment of the week - cover the paper with color in 20 sec! Then add scribles and layers with opaque and transparent paints.
Needless to say, 20 sec are very short! In my case, it took about 1 min to cover the paper because of "technical difficulties" with the paint. But it was fun!
More appropriate would be to call them paintings or studies because drawings are not. But I digress...
Topic of the week: layering and line in black and white only. Vary the opacity of the layers. Do not stray into shape or pattern. Vary the lines.
As usual, I find it hard to work monochromatic. It is always a struggle to not drop some color somewhere ...
I tend to gravitate towards continuous lines that flow relatively smoothly. so I had to pay extra attention to make other types of lines.
I know ... 5 weeks into the new year it is sort of late. Suffice to say that the new year did not start in the best way possible and there are no signs that things will change soon.
At the moment, I am busy with the 100 drawings on cheap paper on line course with Jane. Week 3 already.
I also did the workshop with Veronica Lawlor over at Sketchbook Skool. So all in all, I've been plenty busy!
The first four sketches are from Veronica's workshop; the other ones are continuous line sketch of some stuff on the table, chocolates, more objects and portraits and selfie.
