Sketchin’…. But hardly.

I really haven’t been doing much sketching recently, but I realised that I had uploaded some work on to Artist’s Journal Workshop on FaceBook that I’d completely forgotten to upload here. art sketchingThe first sketch in my new art journal! I can’t believe I’ve actually, finally finished a journal. Not too thrilled with this paper, but I guess I’ll get used to it. Below is a sketchinglucious Dragon fruit that I bought for the first time.The next lot are the sketches I did for the recipe illustration in TheyDrawandCook.com.
Sketches for drawandcook.com Some of it is from the real thing, I actually had an onion, chillies and a lime in front of me, but the rest was just imagination. Not exactly art journaling, but the point here was different, and I scanned these in and incorporated them into the larger layout.
bell sketch This is a delightful bell I found in a small store last year They had lots of quirky stuff, and I loved the bell – with its aged beaten look. The sound is divine, something low and hollow and distant like a Buddhist bell. I’ve just hung it out on my balcony but unfortunately, I really don’t get enough wind to make it ring very often. I did it in plain Hb pencil shading, fixed it, and then applied a little watercolor over.
Alongside is a Tiki lamp. (I’ve just been told what it’s called). It’s delightful, but I suspect rather dangerous to use indoors, so it’s still adorning a quiet corner.
