Okay, I have decided to take part in a challenge called "Every Day in May". The idea is to draw, sketch, paint something every day. However, you can't just do ANYTHING. There is a list of topics.
I started one day late, so I combined the topics for days 1 and 2.
May 1 was "Something Bubbly", and May 2 was "My favorite Sound".
When I decided to start today, I figured the something bubbly would be easy. Lots of bubbly things... soap, soda pop, champagne, etc. However on the "favorite sound" I was stumped. So many beautiful sounds, babbling brooks, the ocean, the laughter of children, music, singing birds, the wind in the trees... how could I pick one?!
Well, I still don't know that I really have a favorite, but I picked one of my favorites. I decided that I liked the sound of the ocean and that I would draw a wave or a beach scene. Problem was, by the time I decided what to draw it was LATE, I should have been in bed.
Then, I got my art bag and discovered my colored pencils missing. That was what I planned to use to draw the scene. I DID have some colored sharpies, micron pens, and a few paint markers. "Sigh" they were not going to give me the effect my watercolor pencils would have given.
Oh well, I couldn't find the colored pencils, and I HAD to draw something now. So I did the best I could with sharpie, micron, and paint markers.
Here is the result, my combo image for May 1st and May 2nd, froth on the wave is bubbly, that will do:
And also, I had promised in my last post to upload a better photo of my latest painting. So here it is:
