June's drawing challenge is Sea Creatures.
The Hobonichi Challenge on Instagram gives
me a different thing to draw each day.
Drawing every day is excellent for honing
your observation skills.
And I'm learning about creatures that
I've never heard of before! The Axolotl
looks like an amazing creature...
Some day I would like to observe whales
in the ocean!
The Dugong reminded me of a Manatee...
I think they are in the same "family."
Drawing and painting in my Hobonichi
Techo in the morning, with my coffee. Linking
up today with the T Tuesday blog hop over at
Bleubeard and Elizabeth's, for a
beverage and a chat. Join us!
The Hobonichi Techo is an A6 size, which is
about 4 inches x 6 inches. A very fine tip
pen for writing and drawing is essential!
I enjoyed a very interesting Netflix show called
"Saving Banksy." Apparently, collectors and art
dealers have been purchasing the walls on
which his works are painted. Walls
that are meant for public viewing, for free.
But put into private collections they are no longer
available to the public. The debate still rages
over whether or not they are art, or vandalism.
Since Banksy maintains strict secrecy of his identity,
he has received no money from the sale of
his works. Invisibility is his Superpower. Well, ok...
some people know who he is. People who work
with him, and are graffiti artists. 'Saving Banksy'
was fascinating to me, I recommend the show.
Above, the fish that inspired 'Saving Nemo'
and 'Finding Dory.' I love Disney animation...
A shark with polka-dots! My white gel pen
was a bit larger tip, and the dots are a bit
bigger than the actual proportion of the
Whale Shark's markings, but you get the idea.
I was pleased with the way the walrus turned out,
and have you ever heard of the
humuhumunukunukuapua'a? It's the state fish of
Hawaii. Very beautiful...but I can't pronounce it!
I hope you are having a day filled with sunshine
and creative endeavors. Thanks for stopping by
for T day! What are you doing today?
