Weekly Sketch Day 4

Today’s daily sketch was done with another sort of abstract theme, and just a quick sketch of an idea:


The City Cried at Dawn

It was done on Crescent RENDR paper in Polychromos pencil.


#weeklysketch Day three – Reflections

For day three of #weeklysketch I wanted to delve even further into the abstract idea of cities that don’t necessarily meet our expectations, hiding little secrets and unknown places:


Reflections I

This particular piece was done, once again, on Canson RENDR paper, using three Copic markers.

City of Wonder Day Two

For the second day of the weekly sketch theme ‘A City of Wonder’, I decided to flex my colored pencils skills:


Dreams of the City of the Imagination

This image was drawn with Faber Castell Polychromos colored pencils in the sketchbook I’m using for all the weekly sketches, a Canson RENDR wire bound. I’m surprised by the versatility of this paper, being primary for markers and illustrations, and how much tooth it has for dry media. It worked fairly well for light pastel application and colored pencil equally.

The photo of the drawing was edited with Photoshop Mobile for size.


Weekly Sketch Begins!

After the completion of 28toMake and some discussion with a few fellow artists(KSS Creations), we have launched a daily creative activity that aims to build confidence in exploring themes and just plain having fun. Here’s how it works:

  1. A new theme will be announced every Monday.
  2. For the next 7 days, create one piece of artwork in any media you choose, and support you choose, with an interpretation of the weekly theme.
  3. Post it to Instagram with the hashtag #weeklysketch.
  4. Have fun!

The idea is to take the weekly theme and explore what possibilities it has for you, and share the different imagesĀ it evokes in your own perspective.

The first week’s theme and my first drawing is(drumroll):


Theme for week 1: “A City of Wonder”

I look forward to seeing all of the ‘wonder’ful efforts!
