Roaring Twenties

Inktober

Was the theme for the figure drawing workshop run by Auckland Atelier (at Takapuna Art Supplies).  I hope one day to get skilled enough to experiment with style and take some risks.  For now, just getting a person-shape is still amazing and precious to me, and then I very very carefully applied the watercolour.  I look forward to not always needing to be so careful, and maybe that’s a psychological skill as well as to do with drawing ability.  On the other hand, it was very relaxing to spend eight hours on one little painting.  (Yes, the model held that pose for eight hours, spread over two days!)

 

 

 

Claudia’s Room

Inktober

For Inktober Day Something.  Claudia Kishi was/is my favourite Baby-Sitters Club character.  Partly because her bedroom was well-stocked with chocolate, art supplies and Nancy Drew books.  (BSC is for me what Nancy Drew was for Claudia).  When I read story books, I usually picture how the environment looks, rather than the characters.  I wish more books came with detailed illustrations of the fictional world.
