I recently discovered a Twitter art prompt that will be taking place over August – Avian August! There are birds allocated to each day of the month. This may solve my “what to post for Blaugust” woes…
Bonus: extra birb scribbles.
I’m happy with this sketch but not really very excited by how the colours ended up. Might have to take another crack at it sometime.
Bonus: here’s how things looked while masked up.
They look simple but I tried masking these with sticky tape and cutting the square stencils from that, which was fiddly. Tore the paper a bit on lifting the masking though, which makes me wary of using sticky tape again in the future. Might just need some more practice or to use slightly different tape.
Two paintings inspired by “A Short Hike” – one from last year, one from more recently. I really love this game and recommend it wholeheartedly! Maybe at some point I’ll draw Claire doing something other than sitting and taking in the sights.
Took my first crack at making meringues (or at least, the first try in my adult life). The rest are currently sitting in the oven (recipe says to let them sit in the oven as it cools) but I couldn’t resist grabbing one to try now.
Once again posting just to keep things alive for a little while. Not sure if I’ll be posting regularly during the month (I’m already drafting “August 1st”‘s post after midnight).
I think there are things I could/should be documenting, so we’ll see what happens for the rest of the month…
