Again, for my day 6, I used the inspiration the book offered, but with my own painting gear. This is but one of my several small palettes, two of my favorite everyday-usage brushes, one of my fountain pens and a couple of my favorite tubes of paint (both of which are colors actually in this palette). For me, the brushes are a real challenge to paint, but I guess you can tell what they are. I really like the way the tubes of paint look, kind of used, squished and realistic.
Then, as sometimes happens, I dropped my fully-loaded brush right on the almost completed sketch, but managed to mostly cover up the mess – especially since it hit on the palette part and mine always look messy and well used anyway, so the extra paint slopped there is rather fitting!
My day 4 sketch/watercolor needs some serious help. It’s a large shell full of smaller shells; they all blend together too much to actually distinguish what is what. I’m thinking some line work might help and will try that…or just redo it. So, jumping ahead a day, my day 5 piece was fun and a real pain to draw! I could have used the reference in the book, but I thought this one should be made more personal-so I used my own pocket/purse items. I love the idea of using your everyday items to practice with and this one was a fairly challenging one. Keys are apparently not my forte, but you can tell what they are supposed to be and I guess that’s what matters. 🙃😜😁
