Day 15 of #thejanuarychallenge was to draw something without using conventional materials. So here is my hand cream smiley face because it’s all I could think of this late in my day. I actually found it kinda funny to do #64millionartists @64millionartists #handcream #smileyface #itslate
This is a follow up on a pic that I posted last week for What is your day to day life like? 3 of 5 #thejanuarychallenge#64millionartists#trainjourney. Yup – still hanging out at train stations, still working on this drawing and still reading this book.… http://ift.tt/2EKKiBM
This is a follow up on a pic that I posted last week for What is your day to day life like? 3 of 5 #thejanuarychallenge #64millionartists #trainjourney. Yup – still hanging out at train stations, still working on this drawing and still reading this book. Drawing on the train can be a bit unsteady and cause havok for my detailed work. I’m learning that drawing on firm ground while waiting or on certain more steady parts of the track during the journey is better. I read at the other times. This design is for the prompt ‘circles’ for the ‘Mindful drawing challenge’ #stoplookbreathecreate which I’m hoping to do after the January challenge. This book ‘Moral ground: Ethical action for a planet in peril’ is a confronting and heart breaking but essential read.
Day 15 – make a picture without art materials.
I went for a walk on my lunch break and collected some mud from the old ironworks nature reserve in Millom, Cumbria. The soil is really red there because of the iron. Unfortunately my sample of soil was just, well, brown, but it had looked red at the time I promise!!
The painting is of the old slag heaps there, with grass in front and clouds behind. A painting of the land…with the land!
I found it quite nice painting with mud – The clumps weren’t as easy to move around as paint and a stick gives very different effects from a brush, but I quite liked that. I could even spread it thinly by using the side of the stick, which would never have occurred to me with the “proper tools”.
Thank you again challengers – really enjoyed this one!!
More of a painting than a drawing (and I really can’t paint, lol)
Coffee, paprika and ribena applied with kitchen sponge, toothbrush (spare!) and cocktail stick.
First time I’ve ever wished I wore makeup. Plenty of pencils and brushes to play with then.
Day 15 of #thejanuarychallenge to draw anything you like with non art materials, I almost forgot about it today and just remembered as I was getting an early night, so here’s my hasty cherry blossom branch using makeup….I think I need a new liquid liner! @64millionartists
I like this kind of challenge having run several drawing sessions with my various groups involving drawing with whatever is to hand. I started drawing with feathers and then carried on to draw feathers with feathers.
Drew a detailed tree on a sheet of paper using a piece of aluminium rod. Sadly all I got was a bit of a blurry mess as I couldn’t get my camera or scanner to capture it very well. Might be that the drawing is metalic.
With the addition of a stubby pencil mouth, I realised my train detritus had made a sort of skull… Not a drawing as such, but certainly a representation without art materials #thejanuarychallenge#64millionartists
I have an eyeshadow palette so I used it to create a peacock feather, and what was supposed to be a Phoenix, but I think looks too much like an onion! I quite liked this exercise as I don’t use pastels or chalks when I’m normally being creative. I’m more of a crafts person than an artist. Nice to break out of your boundaries sometimes and see what happens.
Day 15. Draw on everything. So, today was a collab between me, my lovely nieces and the wonderful Lady Kitt. It’s the Great Wall of China, made with perishable foods, as viewed from a great height. Or something
Day 15 #TheJanuaryChallenge#64MillionArtists Draw on Everything – not sure if this counts, more like sculpture: cabbage & tomato treetopped mountain landscape (over water); flower made of creme fraiche, poached pears & granola (can you tell I’m very tired today ?)

Draw on Everything – not sure if this counts, less drawing & more like sculpture: cabbage & tomato treetopped mountain landscape scene (over water); flower made of creme fraiche, poached pears & granola (a sign of tiredness that this is all I can muster today )
