And the last week closes with a final piece in watercolor and ink style. I’m very pleased with my efforts this month, and looking forward to focusing on other things than art next month – as much as I love doing my art, it isn’t exactly received with much comment, so I’ll go back to it simply as my daily san check. Writing! That’s where I’ll be pointed, I have some big projects to struggle with and bludgeon into compliance. The muse has been recalcitrant too long.
This was a fun challenge. I wanted to not only do architecture justice – it’s not at all my forte – but imply that there is intrigue and story behind a single still image.
For this one, I’d known what I would draw since the prompt list came out. I’ve seen this angle of many a horse!
So many directions this prompt could have taken! That’s part of the fun of the prompts, picking one thing and realizing it fully.
The First Reader, when I sent this to him, “Ah, the houris are killing time!”
I’m not unhappy with the composition of this, but I think if I had time and energy I’d go back into it, make some changes, and add a lab behind our two characters.
This is one of those pieces where I looked at it midway, liked it, and then did too much to it, liking it less by the end.
A final piece, in layers of ink and washes. Only it’s all digital, so looks are deceiving. But it suited me to be a little more complicated for the finale of this N’inktober.
And now, on to other things and I shan’t bother you much with art!
