#Inktober

  ...Days 8-14

I had fun with this weeks sketches for Inktober
This time, instead of just copying what I saw, I decided to sketch from unusual angles, exaggerating perspective! Trouble is, otherwise I will bore too easily!


Day 8:

Eggs...


...I haven't been able to eat them, ever since we had chickens!!


Day 9:

A Cheese Grater...


...I am a cheese lover! 
Not boring old Cheddar, but rather the creamy or stinky blue variety - In fact, the stinkier the better!!


Day 10:

A bottle of plonk...


 ...Quite enjoying the odd glass of red lately... 
Blurry marvellous! Hic!


Day 11:

Some hand wash...


...I am trying hard to find something interesting or witty to say about hand wash... Hmm...
Nope! I got nuthin'!


Day 12:

Cutlery...


...I almost poked my eye out with the damned things while I was holding them up like this!


Day 13:

A liqueur glass...


...My favourite being Baileys... Mmmm!


Day 14:

A bear...?



...Shocking!!!


So there it is, week two. Hope you enjoyed!

  2. Wonderful! And what a great idea to make everyday things more interesting. I particularly love the bottle of wine. Seems like it's coming out of the page.

  5. Love the odd perspectives - I love doing figures from extremely foreshortened angles as well. It really helps to ramp up the creativity!

    1. Thanks Susan!
      Yes, well I was feeling a little 'Blah' after the first week and thought it was time to do something less pedantic and more fun. Foreshortening figures is a great idea do - tricky, but much more interesting :0)

  6. Bonjour ma chère Sandra,

    Tous ces croquis sont craquants ! Des oeufs pour finir par ce fabuleux nounours... sans oublier la bouteille de pinard et le fromage ! Tu es une presque une française ! Il te manque la baguette de pain et le béret !...
    J'adore ce petit billet !

    Je te fais de gros bisous ♡

    1. Merci beaucoup Martine!
      J'ai été en France à quelques reprises - je l'aime un bon fromage et un verre de vin, donc c'est l'endroit parfait pour moi! Je suis content que vous aimez mes petits dessins amusants: 0)

  12. Oh my goodness Sandra these are incredible. I'm just starting a sketching course and there is no way mine are good enough to show. You are amazing.

    1. Whaaaat Of course they are Von! If you can paint the way yo do then how can that be possible??
      Anyway - a sketch is just that - a means to an end - and in my opinion, the more scrawly the better! Pleeeeeeeeeeeeease show me! I'd love to see them! :0)

  13. What a great idea! Really like these different perspectives. I'll have to remember and try that too. I really like how you turned them almost into watercolour paintings, rather than using "just" ink lines.
