Here are my efforts for week 4 through to week 8 of the 2017 challenge. #illo52weeks
Week 4 : Ode to a favourite children's book
For this one I went with The Magic Pudding.
Week 5: Peacock
For this one I did things backwards for me, and did the watercolour first and the ink last.
Week 6: Garden
This one had a Japanese influence on it.
Week 7: Botanical
This is the life cycle of a plant given to someone with brown thumbs...
Healthy plant....sick plant...dead plant.
Week 8: Pastel
I'm not fond of getting pastel dust everywhere, so I went for pastel colours instead.
Again, to shake things up a little, this one had the watercolour first and the ink second. The sign says 'No Picnics' and along the river bank we have a boat and a bear doing a spot of fishing.
Once I get the idea for what to draw to suit the Week's word or phrase, the challenge is fun. Getting the idea is normally the tricky part.
My plan is to post each Week's challenge to Twitter, via @VJCavanagh and then to put groups of them into a blog-post at regular intervals.
News and Other Stuff
About recent artwork, inspirations and other things I find interesting.
