Let’s swing out wild and sketch something related to dance! Anything you like: people dancing, a couple in the swing, a pair of ballet slippers, a dance agent or anything else you like. And that’s anything, perhaps you have a desire to sketch an Orca, or a tantalizing draught (draft? Help Graham, you’re the English professor) beer with a head on it etc. Perhaps the Orca is dancing while holding the beer. Who’s his partner, a lady deer? Let’s just have fun! As usual, the main rule is No Rules!
So, I went to a website, don’t know if it’s Douglas’ favourite, that offers three word prompts for writing. And these three words, books, coffee, conversation seemed ideal as a jumping off point for sketches. So let’s try this. Sketch anything you like related to the three word prompt. These words relate pretty closely to an appealing chunk of our in person Urban Sketchers get togethers, don’t you think? Perhaps these three words aren’t to your taste or liking. In that case pick three others or in the alternative, Your Honour (as we used to say in when I was still in that lawyer gig), sketch something else. Sketch anything you like! Have fun! Enjoy yourself!
Apparently July is 'officially' world watercolour month. To celebrate and promote art using watercolour paint this Doodlewash organization has set up a series of prompts for each day and challenges people to try to paint with watercolour everyday. The prompt list is up as the first photo. Here is a link to the WWM page. https://doodlewash.com/world-watercolor-month-july/ Everyday sound tough, but the challenge is also to try using watercolours if you are usually a pencil or marker user. You've got all month. Let's see some imagination and experimentation.
