Fearless Friday, Inktober 22

I haven’t been doing much art lately,

so to get myself going again

and return to daily sketching,

I’m joining the annual Inktober art challenge

Art challenges are such a great way to challenge yourself,

improve your skills and try new techniques

As you can see by reading the prompt list

you also will draw or paint things outside your comfort zone,

subjects you wouldn’t normally choose

like #1 ,Gargoyle!

It’s also fun to interpret the prompts in an unexpected way

which is what I did for #5, Flame

I often search for free images to use on Pixabay and Unsplash

I saw this horse and immediately knew

that is how I wanted to interpret flame

I drew the image with pencil, then inked over it and erased the pencil

Next I filled the shapes with black

Then I added some lines for interest

More lines in the “flames”

Then I used yellow watercolor to paint the flames,

then orange, and then red

I generally only spend between 15-30 minutes on these daily drawings,

so the challenge is a great way to include daily drawing in your busy day

And just like anything else,

the more often you do it, the better you will be!

Be Fearless and join an art challenge!

Doodlewash has a new challenge every month

    What awesome talent you have! And creative interpretations as well.
    Once again I can say You are Awesome!

  5. I love that you try new things without fear. Your adventurous, fearless spirit in cooking, art, blogging and life. It comes through as confidence which is rare quality I love- I got all of this from one drawing! Can’t wait to see the rest of the month.

  6. I always love it when you share your art, Jenna. I should do Inktober!

  7. I’m enjoying your Inktober Challenge posts on Instagram. I would do Inktober, but if I buy more art supplies (I do not own ink) Mr. Bookish would not be a happy camper, LOL!

    These are challenging prompts. My favorite is your gargoyle. He has just enough cheekiness to make me smile while remaining a gargoyle!

    Some interesting prompts Jenna, and your drawings are beautiful! I love the gargoyle, but the flame interpretation was inspired. You truly are a fearless creator!
