sketches on friday

I found a website about sketch and illustration challenges, Illustration friday. llustration Friday is a weekly creative outlet/participatory art exhibit for illustrators & artists of all skill levels. A new topic is posted each Friday and you have one week to draw, paint or doodle your interpretation.

This week topic is "wool".

And here is my part.

The right one looks like an apple or somewhat else, but I wanted to sketch an ball of wool ;-). After the sketch with a black pen I decided to watercolor it. Hm... I'm not satisfied with it. I realized that I'm not the perfect realistic type of drawer. I'm not so good, so I feel better with my non perfect wiggly style.

Last week I was inspired by the work of Sarah Melling, Kelly Bermudez and Jessica Durrant. I decided to retrace some of their work. And it also showed me my limitations of drawing. But I had a lot of fun with the feather and the jellyfish.

And then I was in a feather fever ;-)

I'm very pleased to find a great community in the www and to learn from other artists, to find my own way and style.

I share it to the wonderful Paint Party Friday.
