A new temporary logo for Sunday Sketches challenge

A new temporary logo for Sunday Sketches challenge

Welcome to my s~A(R)T~urday linky party – today: Sunday Sketches

“The goal of life: simple, but not empty.”

~ Terri Guillemets ~

Quite literally this is a Sunday Sketches post, because I sketched the illustration you see below today. Alex challenged participants to come up with a temporary logo for here meme. Required were a tree and the meme’s name:

Sunday Sketches from England

I really did not think that I would participate in this challenge, because I have a few other things on my mind. But I guess it is one of those things: Today I just had to sit down and draw something. And, of course, being Sunday I thought about Sunday Sketches. I drew this first with my pens on paper, trying to have the ink strokes of the tree trunk and ‘branches’ very uneven on purpose to imply gnarly bark.

Then I scanned and colored the image in ProCreate on my iPad. Overall I was looking for a paper and drawing feel. As in not too perfect, hence e.g. the bleeding over the edges of the black ink.

Since I did the coloring in ProCreate, I am sharing with you the timelapse video a.k.a. speedpainting that you can save with this app.

Please check out the other entries, because they are fantastic! I already had a peek at a couple and they are wonderful.

Cheers,

    Very unique and so cleverly done Claudia,
    You use a technique that I’ve never used and your video is spellbinding! Good Luck with the logo.

    it’s fun to see the timelapse video, seeing the strokes/colors and how it changes. I didn’t even think to make the tree that way but this works well.

    have a lovely day.

    I was surprised to see a linky? I thought you were away for the Summer, no sARTurday. Am I wrong? I am thinking that these art memes do not include creative writing. But, wow! The artists are great!Please let me know! I love when “less is more”, so I like this artwork. And I really like that quote! Keep in touch…I am a fan! HUGS!
