Join me as I do a quick sketch of waterlilies on, what I call, the lost pond. We’ve found it now so it isn’t lost anymore! Water lily leaves are basically circular so, to draw them from a side view, they need to be ellipses but all set on the same plane.
I didn’t have very long to do this, about half an hour with set up time. The video has only about 30 seconds edited from it. I drivel on a bit, but I hope some of my chat is useful. Otherwise it’s a nice, peaceful, sunny afternoon by the pond
Finally a three marker challenge video – I’ve been asked to do it often. In this video I draw a Tunacorn – or my idea of one and colour it in with pink, purple and green – not the most friendly colours!
I said I’d let one person who filled in my questionnaire the chance to choose a video. Mikkel SH was the lucky winner and Mikkel asked me to do a Three Marker Challenge, to draw a fantasy creature in pink purple and green. Well this video is the result – Hope you like it.
A couple of weeks back, I spent the whole week recording The Big Malarkey Children’s Festival in Hull. It was an amazing week put on as part of the City of Culture celebrations. Here are all the videos I made in order.
Many thanks to the wonderful Library Staff who put the whole thing on with the help of all the festival volunteers. Thanks also to the performers and visitors who also appear on the pages of my sketchbook.
