RE: FEBRUARY CONTEST PROMPT "LOVE"
Might as well be the first! This was drawn from a photo I took of my two boys
It was saturday morning, they'd already eaten their breakfast and were happily horsing around the livingroom. I guess here they were playing tug of war with the pants the big brother was supposed to put on
I was drinking a cup of coffee and thinking how all is well.
I used a brush pen plus colour pencils.
RE: Hello from Finland!
@thiskatecreates I used to paint with oil colours for a short while years ago, but like you said the setting up (and storing the unfinished work) was a pain in the you know where!
@hannahmccaffery haha I don't know if the trains here are that clean but the hard lighting and colour choices (white, grey, green, in the newer trains) make them seem like sterile operating rooms...
Thanks for the welcome, everyone!
RE: Watercolor bat - color question
Your question made me think of Henri Rousseau's work: he painted night scenes which are very colourful and only the moon in the sky, the cool grey/blue sky and very high contrast shadows let you know it's night time. I know his art isn't for everyone's taste, but you might want to look it up for reference.
RE: JANUARY PROMPT "BIG"
"At that very moment, Jeff realised what a terrible idea his research was. Besides being nearly indestructible, the giant tardigrade was a total jerk."
So here's my take to the subject It's drawn with a felt tip and technical pens. I kinda see a couple of things that might have needed some polishing (plus the paper got wrinkled), but never mind, it was fun little project!
Is it okay if I post this on my insta-account while the competition is still running? It wasn't forbidden or anything in the rules but this newcomer wants to know she's playing by the book.
