Inktober Week Four: The Home Strech

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.

Lady Justice was done in the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and Micron 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.

A mouse caught by a cat. Brush and technical pens with markers.

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.

A little fall fun!

That is it for now.

Happy Art Journey,
