I’m starting Inktober52 (actually I have had a very hard time finding the prompt list for Inktober52). This challenge provides one drawing prompt word per week, for 52 weeks of the year. For week 1 the prompt word is “build”.
Well, the emu has again risen to the challenge and built a bird house for a needy family.
I usually only draw a few outlines before I start painting but because this is a drawing with ink challenge, I drew the picture in detail before I started painting. It’s not my preferred method of working but I think it is good to mix things up.
I hope you are warm and toasty, wherever you call home.
Birds give me such joy. I currently have three birdbaths in my garden and plan on adding more.
Birds can spot a safe mode of travel, as evidenced by this painting, where they spotted a fashion-conscious, large bird, wearing a bird-friendly patterned dress and shoes, and immediately knew that this was just the right kind of vehicle to embark on!
Day 24 of the Inktober Challenge. Prompt word 24 is “fairy”.
A wish from the Emu Fairy. You may have not known that emu fairies existed but here is proof that they do. 🙂
The “May All Your Dreams Come True” painting was first drawn with an Artline pen and then watercolour paint was added. I painted it on 310gsm watercolour paper, approximately 21 x 26 cm, and it has my full name and signature on the back.
