The theme this time around is insects. At the height of summer, there are plenty of them around. My choice [once again using the Apple Pencil and Procreate] is a butterfly –although it could be a moth. I used a photo for reference on the basic shape but otherwise this creature does not exist in nature!
The challenge this time was to draw ships or boats. My choice for the drawing is a traditional fishing boat used in Galway Bay. This singled masted boat has one main sail and two foresails. Developed to sail the strong seas off the west coast of Ireland, here is my Galway Hooker:
I’ve packed up all my art supplies save for one large and one small sketchbook. Even with these left to use, I decided to try another piece using Procreate and the iPad. There is definitely a learning curve but I’m enjoying the process. The program has some really cool features to explore too. I used the ‘clouds’ effect for the backdrop of my drawing this week. Here is my hummingbird –one of the most delightful creatures on this little patch of Bucks County.
