#inktober days 1-5

7 Oct
[Inktober: 31 Days 31 Drawings, following a prompt list.]

I’m doing Inktober again and I like it. It was fun last year. I’m rather pleased with what I did thus far. I have the impression I have progressed. It takes me 2 to 3 hours every night, depending on how long I need to find my subject, then I focus without interruption till I’m done and realise my coffee is cold, I have not smoked and I’ve done something pretty.

Day 1: ‘swift’. Drawing of a swordsman wielding a Japanese sword. Black ink Uni-ball pin pen (0.05 mm), and grey soft brush Pitt Artist Pen.

#drawvember: days 21-30

3 Dec

These ten drawings conclude #drawvember. Each took me more or less time, depending on how long I could take, or the sort of drawing I was keen on making. I can’t make time to draw everyday in December so I’ll take a break after an enjoyable two-month sprint. 


Day 21: Three Musketeers. As seen in the Air France in flight magazine, an ad for a show, I believe. Turquoise, yellow and crimson watercolour applied with a drawing pen.

Day 22: Caracasablanca. As seen again in an ad in the Air France in flight magazine. Toucan overlooking rainforest and desert dunes which five camels climb. Watercolour.

Day 30: Nude woman reclining, seen from the back. After Van Gogh. I had precious little time for the last day. A quick pencil sketch on a small surface of the art book and I then used a black Uni pin pen (0.1 mm). Nude woman reclining, seen from the back. After Van Gogh
Goulwen thought the inking wasn’t right, but then he’s a specialist and I’m not. I asked if he’d show us and he did! Beautifully.
