#365DaysOfArtPBQChallenge Week 4, Exercises 22-28

Day 27:  Continue creating patterns.  Use warm colors.  

This was my favorite this week.  Warm colors are not my preference, so it was fun to color in therm.  I think I should have used flairs to get more color, but still I had fun.

Day 22 – what made you smile today?  A hawk made me smile.  My photo of this bird wasn’t great either but this is a pretty sill sketch of a bird!   S/he was right outside my window and just captivated my attention for quite some time.  I am looking for a repeat visit but not yet….

Day 24:  Color in the stripes.  I just colored and had fun.  And yes, this is closer to my normal palette.

Day 23:  Fill the page with colored dots.  I did – easy and fun.

 Day26:  Add your own scene.  Well I went with a campground kind of feel, with forest across on the other side.  I loved drawing the trees.  Hated the campground – but I don’t really like to camp so maybe it came through in the coloring!

Day 25:  Fill the squares with different marks.  This felt like quilt as desired so I had fun, but a few were not as successful – but you get the idea.

Day 28: Design some T-shirts.    Long ago and faraway I wanted to design clothes.  Good thing I didn’t! They aren’t bad, but they would not have made me a lot of money.

    I think your exercises put mine to shame!!! Your river scene is so much nicer and I disagree with you, your shirts are awesome! <3 Hope you are getting your creative juices flowing too!

      Thanks, Sherry! I don't think that's true but I am enjoying it – in some odd way – and do feel like I am learning something.

      These are fun, Nancy, and not terribly onerous. Harder to add one more thing in the day but once I get going I have fun.

      What a super exercise this is, perfect to get the creative juices flowing. I think it's like anything else: practice and discipline will lead to improvement.
