Eyepaint's 2015 WDE Sketches

Happy New Year! A new year means a new thread for my WDE sketches! For my WDE sketches from previous years see my signature line below.

To start off, these are from the Jan 2 WDE hosted by ValriAry:

Re: Eyepaint's 2015 WDE Sketches

Oh, this looks like a wonderful idea! I haven't been familiar with your work up until now, but I love it.
Do you have some rules to decide how big the frames are going to be? Do you draw them first and then fill with different pictures?
Thank you

Re: Eyepaint's 2015 WDE Sketches

Are the WDE sketches the same as the scavenger hunts?
I love your technique. Do you even have to think about how you divide up the object? Or do you draw the frames first? Very cool.

Re: Eyepaint's 2015 WDE Sketches

Doug - thank you. I update once a week, usually.

Nick7 - thank you. I draw the frames on my pages weeks ahead of time - I draw many many pages all at once. I know that for the WDE there are usually 16 photos plus an invitation. And I make a frame for the reference - date and host. Then I just make shapes in interesting formations. I go for 18 or so on the two pages but it depends on the shapes. The "use more than one frame" came about by accident. I drew one more frame than reference photos. So I drew one that spilled into another. It was an fellow pouring Indonesian tea from a great distance and so I drew the flow across the two panes. People loved it. And so most times I draw at least one image across two panes.

pezk/patk - thank you. Scavenger Hunt sketches are items drawn from life. The WDE sketches I do are from the photos posted by the host for that weekend. Typically people do drawings or paintings. Many years ago a host gave a challenge to do thumbnail drawings of all the photos. I tried the idea and got hooked.

Looks like a VW tucked into one of your boxes. There is such a wide variety of subjects in this group. Great as always!
