Day 11-Photo Doodles

Image
Today's task - doodle on a photo. I tried doing it on my phone but I found it hard to do on the small screen. So instead I stuck an old photo to a page and worked from there. I probably shouldn't have tried to turn the flowers into a person , seen as I can't draw people. But the idea is there.

Day 10-Blind Self Portrait

Image
I have to say, I was dreading this challenge. I am hopeless at drawing people. The task was to look at yourself in the mirror, put your pen or pencil on the page and draw yourself without looking at the page or lifting the pen/pencil.

It was actually quite fun, and it's not supposed to be perfect so that worked for me!

Day 9 - Scribbles

Image
Today's challenge was to create drawings from scribbles. So I pulled out some pages the kids had worked their magic on and tried to work my own.

Day 8- 30 Circles

Image
Day 7 was a day of rest and reflection. So I'm back into the challenge today with 30 circles.  I'd say I took a bit longer than the 20 minutes assigned- I kept stopping to try and think of something else to draw.

Day 6:People-Watching Mad Lib

Image
Day 6 for as quite a challenge- lettering is definitely not my thing. I gave it a go though, getting into the spirit of the whole endeavour.


I also have a finished project to show - a crochet unicorn. Or in fact, two crocheted unicorns. I was commissioned to make one ( pattern by Marina Chuchkalova) but of course I had to make one for Emily too! It actually gave me a practice run at it as my tension changed quite a bit through the first unicorn.




Day 5: Draw a receipt

Image
Lettering is not my thing so today's task was a challenge. It did make me focus on how the letters were formed and really trying to watch out for the changes in style. It doesn't look too bad, but I won't be posting a picture of the original receipt 😂


This receipt has a nice memory- a girly trip to the newly refurbished National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin with Emily. We saw some stunning architecture, beautiful paintings and ate some yummy cake.
