Over on the photography forum they've got a fun thread going (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=421600)

They post a photo that references the previous link and then give a subject for the following person to show. The idea is that people can dredge through old work to find a suitable image.

No time limit - it can go on until people become bored.

Does anyone fancy doing it here? but with sketches/paintings?

I really like the line drawing of your "love"

As my most "favorite Christmas thing" I am remembering these ornaments that must have been from the 50's (telling my age), I just remember them and really don't know why that I always thought they were so beautiful. So, here I have tried to recreate one totally from my memory.

Mixed media: graphite, pen and ink, and acrylic wash on sketchbook page:

Jenny: Such a romantic and dreamy study of magnolia
Joan T: your drawing skills are so good. love your christmas subjects and I've already told you how much I like your "dock" sketch.

OK, so this subject is supposed to be "cozy".

This is from my sketchbook and drawn in 1996. It was done in my son's third floor walk-up in Philadelphia. He lived there while working on his doctorate at Drexel. Seems so long ago. I always thought it was a cozy place.

Vivien, love the gesture in your sketch of your daughter.

Okay, now this is waaay out of my comfort zone. Noses are weird! You see I had to tilt the sketch to make it look right... :lol:

Vivien: great gestural qualities of your much loved daughter-your use of sepia gives such warmth too.
Deborah: beautiful nose/profile-so fine!

Julie: Because it is so hard to keep up here, I may be breaking some rules? However, I'm posting a sketch on the subject a few posts back: "and the next sketch is one of the earliest ones you still have". This may not be the very earliest one in my "archives" (I could dig through some old portfolios and find some) , however it is handy in one of my sketchbooks from the late 1960's (does anyone besides me remember the 60's?):

Such enjoyable and interesting creations always posted here. My kudos to everyone! I really enjoy this forum.
Here's my:
"Next image .... Lets have water again" (as requested by vivien):

The water in this image is pouring from a jug in a garden at the Hotel Villa River in San Miquel de Allende, Mexico. The pool is in a lovely garden at the hotel. Every evening before dinner, my companions and I would enjoy drinks in the garden and most evenings I would sketch while we visited and experienced the environment. I was there about four years ago, so this image was drawn then.

Vivien, I really love that beach one! So simple and elegant.

Thanks, Rainy. :)

Okay, architectural....not my strong suit but I have this from my sketch journal. It's a RIL favorite, somewhere in Europe, I expect. A small sketch, about 2.5" x 4.5", in gouache.

Mountains. I was working up some sketches for paintings, as you can see.

Nice thumbnails, Deborah! You're so professional!

I really like both hands pictures, the second one is very creative; I wonder what the story behind it is...

Love the colours on the tree, Jacqui! No lollipop trees in your book! ;)

When I hear the word 'peace', the symbol I think of is a dove and twig (natch!). The closest thing I have to that is a little bird done in my new Epsilon.

Hi maryinasia
Those poor children... and that beast looking so very smug...
What medium did you use to do this and what size and on what substrate... just curious.
Clever post.
Steven

maryinasia
01-17-2013, 09:32 PM
Thanks! Something about water buffaloes is just funny.

The children here often lead the water buffalo out to graze.... they can play while he's grazing, after they harvest plants to take home for the pigs to eat.

01-17-2013, 09:36 PM
Mary, the look! :lol: My mare used to look at me like that after she had dumped me off her back in the dust, as if to say, 'Why did you get off?'

another humorous, of a different sort

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/17-Jan-2013/23609-DSCN9653.jpg

I've always enjoyed blind contour drawing but this one amuses me. The figure was just walking down the street but this contour suggests all kinds of things! Anyway, I'm easily amused...

Their textures, shape and colour were wonderful to draw.


Next ..... Shall we go with either the something new or borrowed to finish that theme?

borrowed from Van Gogh :) very mixed media

so, the next sketch is something new? or a new sketch?

vhere
01-25-2013, 11:15 AM
Oh sugar! I forgot I'd added one here today! The artichoke has become a snow scene ... My fault, sorry. I added it to the iPad thread and it made it change this one as well.

Although the ice blue sky almost s fits the theme.

Very Van Gogh Mary.

Deborah Secor
01-25-2013, 03:10 PM
I saw the artichoke flower before it disappeared! Nice!!

Great take on van Gogh, Mary. :)
