There are only three days left to Inktober! I found week four to be the hardest to keep up with. We had multiple illnesses in our family and many of the pieces I did this week are not my best work. But, I still think it is important to get in daily art practice even if it is only fifteen minutes. I write more about Inktober and why I think it is a good idea here. How did your week four go?
Day 22: Trail
My Path is a Tight Rope.
For day 22 of Inktober I was inspired by the exploits of Maria Spelterini this first woman to cross the Niagra George on a tightrope. Technical and brush pens on drawing paper
Day 23: Juicy
Just some simple technical pen and marker drawings of fruit. The grapes feature the contents of this Month’s ArtSnacks box. Technical pens, ink, and markers.
Day 24: Blind
For Inktober day 24 ‘blind’, I choose Lady Justice. Lady Justice the personification of Law is often shown as blindfolded to represent a lack of biases. I am not the best at figure drawing but I think I am getting better. Brush pen and technical pen.
Day 25: Ship
This was a less than a great day sick kids, sick hubby, and I was also down with a stomach bug. The image shows the Midgard Serpent in the depths below a Viking Knarr. Jörmungandr was thought to be a child of Loki and was a dragon so large he wrapped around all of Midgard. He is a component of Ragnarök the doom of the Gods.
Day 26: Squeak
A mouse having a very bad day. The reference is from the Wet Canvas reference library.
Day 27: Climb
Witches’ cats get together on Halloween to climb an old farm wall. I had time in the evening so I did a larger illustration. The outlines are in nib pen with India ink. I completed the piece with watercolors and markers.
Day 28: Fall
Black cats have fun with the fall leaves in this Inktober illustration. The outlines are in nib pen with India ink. I completed the piece with watercolors.
That is it for now.
Happy Art Journey,
