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!
