Creativity Boot Camp - Day 9

>> Monday, June 14, 2010

Pencil on Sketch Paper

So for Day 9 of Creativity Boot Camp our prompt word was 'drizzle'.  I immediately thought of rain but I wanted to go a little outside the immediate response to the word.  I came up with this as I used to make these for Christmas for my kids and you drizzle the icing on.  I drew this from a memory and it's one of the very few things that I've sketched totally freehand.  Typically I use the grid method but I'm trying to get into drawing without it.  I know my plate is a not exactly proportioned and a little misshapen but overall I'm very pleased with it.

I never did get to start a watercolor yesterday.  In fact other than boot camp and Sunday Sketches I only got the image transferred onto my watercolor paper.  I had the worst headache all day and couldn't concentrate enough.  I finally gave up and laid down and watched the movie Big Fish which was extremely good and I would recommend it to anyone.  

This week I'll be working some overtime and wont have as much spare time to spend on boot camp.  It makes me a little sad that we're already over halfway through.  What will I do when it ends?  Where will I get the ideas to draw things I normally wouldn't just because of one little word? Will people still visit my blog?  So many questions, so little time!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and I can't wait to see what everyone came up with for this week's word prompt!

Food! You and I were on the same wave length. Your sketch caught my eye immediately. I know, I love having a little assignment. And not editing to perfection.

Wow! This turned out great. I think you should continue to freehand because is my favorite of yours so far.

Deanna you are a very gifted artist. The best I can do for the creativity blog is my photography. I took a life drawing class one time and the instructor said I should try sculpting... seriously something must have been wrong with my drawing skills! Thanks for visiting color chic! Have a great day!
