Jude is hosting a new challenge. Each month she will choose a colour for us to search for in our life. This month it is brown.
I enjoy using brown in my art and I have a number of projects done in different mediums I would like to share with you this week for Jude’s challenge.
Animals are one of my favourite subjects and I used coffe to capture this cute cocker spaniel.
Neesha is my daughter in law’s cat. She is an old girl with great attitude. I used colour pencils this time.
For years I have been horse crazy. My school books always had horse sketches in the margins. I drew this horse, in pastel, for my daughter. She is horse mad too and recently acquired 2 horses.
Using sepia toned paper this kangaroo was drawn using a new sort of pen I’ve just bought. The “elegant writer” can be used for pen and wash and finished with a white pencil for highlights.
Architecture in landscapes is another favourite subject. This was drawn from a photo using acrylic in a water colour style.
Finally, my latest painting, just finished this week while we are again in lock down (but only, hopefully, for 3 days) I used gouache, a medium I have totally fallen in love with, I have not used it before.
I’m enjoying this new challenge and it has drawn me back into the blogging community. Take a look at Jude’s rules for this challenge, very simple, and the colour choice will be changing each month.
