Shoot it, Sketch it: Seagulls

Seagull PhotoSeagull drawing 1

Today’s Shoot it, Sketch it is of some very stylised seagulls at the beach. I did this onto a large A3 piece of watercolour paper and am sooo happy with the result! The seagull in the middle looks like he is wearing a suit of armour, ready for war!

Shoot it, Sketch it: Fuschia

Fuschia Flower 1

For the Shoot it, Sketch it drawing today I have used this photo for inspiration. Sometimes I dont like to copy a photo I have taken, exactly. But rather use it to get the correct balance and measurements in a piece of art. Today’s drawing is an example of this.
Have an amazing week, friends! Time for me to get organised for a nice long weekend off over Easter!

Red PoppiesRed Poppy Vase Drawing 2

A friends gave me these flowers whilst we were living in Sydney. I had taken a photo of them on my phone and as I was browsing my phone albums, I thought it would be the perfect inspiration behind today’s Shoot it, Sketch it feature. I’m not sure what it is about poppies but I just LOVE them. Some photos I have taken of them in the past are here, here and here. And other poppy artworks here, here and here.

Shoot it, Sketch it: Apples!

Apple Photo Watercolour Apples 2

Good morning friends! Here is this weeks Shoot it, Sketch it drawing. We have a family bach that has the most delicious fruit trees on it. Mum recently brought some apples back from there and I was inspired to draw some of them. I love fruit, it is the best snack. I also have wonderful memories of my brother and I running around the orchard at dusk, eating fruit and not going to bed until it was dark.
This drawing is now available on the Clouds of Colour Shop! I hope you all have a beaut week planned!
