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:
This time the theme was fruits and vegetables. Once again, I went digital for this challenge. However, though I’m using a modern technique, I chose a timeless classic for my still life subject: A bowl of fruit.
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.
