Art Blog Hop

Posted on

It’s Monday, blog hop time.  If you would like to join in the fun, hop on over to Jana Robins for the details.  Even if you don’t have a piece to share this week, you can still link to this hop and work on a piece for next week. Honestly, you can do your entry in just a few minutes since this is just suppose to act as an online art journal. There is no need to spend hours creating your entry unless the topic inspires you to create more.

Last week’s topic was to create a drawing from a worm’s eye view.  My son was building a block tower this morning, so I decided to take a pic and draw that.  This image is my sketch of that picture.  I used pencil and Prismacolors.

*NEXT WEEK’S TOPIC:  Still life.  Pick a still life of your choosing and sketch it.  You can either set one up or just use something that is already set up around your house.
Have fun drawing!

Last week’s topic was to create a contour drawing.  The goal of a contour is to never pick up your pencil, and it’s a great way to create a loose, interesting drawing.  In a contour, you don’t have to worry about mistakes, which frees you to just draw without consequence.  I chose a funny picture of my seven year old in a mustache, because faces are always a challenge with a contour drawing.  Does it look like him?  No, but I still like the result, and had a blast with the exercise.

*NEXT WEEK’S TOPIC:  Create a drawing from a worm’s eye view.  Imagine and draw how different things would look if you were the size of a worm.  Have fun creating and have a great week!

Art Blog Hop Monday

Posted on

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Today kicks off our first art blog hop.  I hope you will consider joining in.  Jana announced the theme last week, so everyone would have a week to work on their pieces.  The theme was to create a picture of your backyard in bloom in honor of spring using the media of your choice.  As she said last week, this is not a piece to spend days on (unless you are inspired to take the piece further).  This is basically an online art journal to get your creative juices flowing.  If you missed the theme last week, please still feel free to post a link to your website and you can join in anytime.

*NEXT WEEK’S TOPIC: If you would like to join in the blog hop, the topic for next week is to create a word picture.  Select a word that brings to mind a mental picture and draw it as the shape or concept of that word.   For example, draw the word apple in the shape of an apple, or apples spelling out the word.

THIS WEEK’S PIECE

There is nothing blooming in my yard yet, but this tree is close.  As I was sketching the leaves and buds, I felt like I was being watched.  I turned my head to see my three chickens checking me out; they seemed very interested in my art, but were probably just wondering why I wasn’t giving them any yummy treats.  They are quite spoiled!  I took the opportunity to sketch Georgia, as she was calm and still.  Chickens don’t normally make very obliging models.  I had fun, and am looking forward to next week’s assignment.
