It's hard to believe that four weeks have passed already, the last time I shared an installment of my "better" drawings for a month's worth of prompts with the #dailycreating group, hosted by Visual Artist/Creative Encourager Terry Runyan.
I am a fairly faithful follower of the daily prompts. Sometimes they work for me, sometimes not so much. Some of the prompts I have trouble connecting with, so invariably the drawing doesn't go all that well.
During January, I found among my 31 drawings 11 that satisfied me somewhat. I present those to you in this post.
As always, above each of the drawings, I will add the prompt, as well as any other tidbits of information I have. You will probably notice that three drawings this month are of my own design, not following any references whatsoever. I am not comfortable with that aspect of drawing, but am working on it. Usually I don't like the results of my own creations, but these three I find somewhat endearing, so I have included them. I am sure it will be apparent which three I am talking about.
cavalier king charles spaniel
female northern cardinal
And there you have it.
Terry has designated all Wednesdays as #thingonthing day, sometimes throwing in an additional prompt. I like this day because the interpretation of this prompt can be stretched in any number of ways, giving me all sorts of freedom.
Also, Saturdays are always #dogurday or #caturday, once again with an optional prompt often thrown in. I am not very good at drawing cats. I don't understand that, cat lover that I am. So I usually opt for drawing a dog for #dogurday. Lately though I am burning out on dog drawings.
Please respect that these are my original drawings and are not to be used in any way by anyone other than myself without my express permission. I will have a giclee print made for you of any you find to your liking. Please contact me.
Wonderful artwork! My fave is secretary bird ~ so fun and whimsical!ReplyDelete
Thanks! Aren't they just the craziest looking birds!?!Delete
Your artwork is fabulous Linda, and I do love your secretary bird! I have been doing the Doodlewash monthly challenges since last fall, and I have enjoyed the challenge of interpreting the prompts into something I want to draw or paint. I will check out Terry Runyan, thanks!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Jenna! And please do check out Terry Runyan's #dailycreating group. We would love to have you!Delete
Wow, your drawings are so beautiful! Please keep sharing them. My favourite is the secretary bird - so full of character.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much! As long as I keep drawing -- which I sometimes consider stopping -- I will continue to share the ones I deem shareable about once a month on my blog.Delete
Linda, I love when you share your daily creations! I will be featuring these on this week’s Creative Compulsions.ReplyDelete
Aw, thank you, Michelle! You are so sweet -- and encouraging. Sometimes I think I should just give up on the drawing. . .Delete
