A Sketch a day = Days 94-98

Day 94.  Blue wrens.  I wasn’t sure I liked the first bird, so did a second one…and then preferred the first. LOL all good exercise for me.  Caran d’ Ache Aquerelle water colour pencils.

 

 

 

 

 

 
Day 95. Delores Stewart ..from the book by Betty Edwards-Drawing with the right side of the brain.

I used a 2B pencil for the exercise.

 

 

 

 

 

Day 96. I loved these geese when I saw them in the ‘Watercolour for Absolute Beginners’ book and just had to try them.  The Aquarelles were again used.

 

 

 

 

 
Day 97. Weird light again today.  I did use white paper.

The writing below was an upside down exercise.  I accidentally had my sketch book upside down  when I wrote this way but turned it the right way up for the lavender.

 

 

 

 

This is what I read from  and agree it was difficult.

 

Day 98.  another simple drawing and quick to paint with the Aquarelles.

  1. I once went to a camp where we trained upside-down and back-to-front writing. It was VERY difficult. Being inspired by your post I just gave it a try again, and it is still difficult.
    Lovely sketches, I love your wrens.

    • It is awkward Queenie, I’m happy you like the wrens. We have lots of them near us.

  2. What a lot of beauty for one post. That goose on the right particularly seems to be about to step right off the page – you did a good job with the feeling of movement. The florals are all wonderful, and I love the lavender – maybe because it almost looks like a CQ motif! =) I do tend to be single minded. Thanks for sharing all your work. I actually learn things from it about design.

    • Susan, thank you for the lovely comment; you encourage me to keep going. If you can use the lavender for an embroidery idea, go for it. It is what I do if I see a picture of flowers.

  3. I’m in awe of those wrens (both of them!). I’ve never seen them before of course, and am impressed by that wonderful bright blue. The geese look like they’re out for a promenade.

  4. The male wren is blue, MA, and the female dull brown.
    LOL Don’t all geese promenade?
