Welcome to my s~A(R)T~urday linky party – today: Digital Drawings
“The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without work.” ~ Émile Zola ~
es, I have been drawing again, a little. Actually, mostly I have been sketching with graphite pencil, practicing faces, bodies and parts in my journal. Some time along the way I longed for color. So, I grabbed my iPad Sketchbook and did the girl drawing.
I really am drawn to the minimalist style of comics, manga. But, let’s just say – it is not as simple as it looks. But that’s they way with everything.
The other drawing, we call him ‘Mr. Proper’, is a few weeks old. He saw the light of day in about 30000 feet above earth. Yep, I drew him while sitting in the plane on our way to Bonaire. It really just is a fun sketch I did on the iPad, which I then filled with color. At that point I was actually getting used to Sketchbook and trying out some features. In the end Mr. Proper grinned at us. Well, I call him Mr. Proper, David prefers ‘The Joker’ – hahaha. Whatever, just a fun sketch I decided to share with you today.
I am hoping to be doing some more drawing or even painting this weekend. But, then again, you just never know. At the moment I seem to be in need of a lot, and I mean a LOT, of downtime. As in – not doing anything. That’s o.k. though. We have to listen to ourselves to feel and be our best.
Here’s to the weekend – enjoy it!
