Is it already time to share another month's drawings from the #dailycreating Facebook group, hosted by Terry Runyan? In this post, I have my favorites that I did during the month of May 2021. In looking back on these pieces, I realize that I have been steadily moving into my "bird period".
By now, I am firmly into my "new" medium, Derwent Inktense Pencils. Here and there I might use a bit of Copic Markers, especially when I want an intense crispy black. I can't seem to achieve this look with my pencils. Maybe that talent will emerge someday. For now, Copic Marker black does the trick. I am still learning the ins and outs of the Inktense Pencils. Please bear with me.
The #dailycreating group, as I previously noted, is run by renowned artist Terry Runyan. As members of this worldwide group, we are encouraged to be creative in some way each day. And then we are able to upload our creations to the group, a family of artists that is friendly, engaging and encouraging. I've been a member of this group since August, 2018.
Each Sunday afternoon, Terry posts a daily prompt for the upcoming week. While the prompts are optional, I usually work with them as a great starting point. If a prompt doesn't resonate with me for some reason, I will deviate and march to my own creative drummer.
I have chosen 14 drawings from May that I feel comfortable enough to put out there in the public eye. They are shown below.
Above each of the pieces I will note what the prompt was for the day (if I followed it), as well as any pertinent information I may have about my subject matter.
