I didn't get alot of time for drawing this week but I did come up with these few. They are all drawn with a black pen and coloured with watercolour pencils. I have a bit of a thing for the watercolour pencils this week and playing with layering colours together to try to create dimension.
1. For the prompt - Draw a treasure chest, I have drawn this wooden trunk with coins in it. I tried to give it an old worlde kind of look but I think it looks a bit more western. I think the coins came out pretty successfully.
2. For this next prompt - Draw a doughnut, I have well, drawn a doughnut, or two. Again, layering colours to try to create dimension. I was going to do a chocolate one with the pink one but, I thought that would be a little too much brown!
3. This next drawing was just for a little fun. Its from the front of a cheap greeting card. The shell came out all wrong but I still like the way the turtle came out on the whole.4. Lastly, This one was draw for the Prompt - Draw something to do with Bees. This kind of came out looking like a hornets nest...or not, actually, I don't know what a hornets nest looks like! Ok, Its a Bee Condo!

This drawing is in the style of a set of ATCs I did last year. I actually got the idea from some cushion I made for the couch, the material has a picture of a fish with lots of bright colours that I love, so, styled on these, I drew this poor hooked fishy. Drawn with black pen and coloured with watercolour paints.
I'm not sure this was how "elements" was supposed to be interpreted but I took this as "Draw my representation of the elements", I have drawn earth, wind, fire and water. It is somewhat abstract but the elements are there. Drawn with a Pitt brush pen and coloured with watercolour paints.
The mushroom is drawn with a black Pitt brush pen and coloured with water colour paints. I saw some vandalism on a shop side wall once with four or five mushrooms drawn in a similar fashion to this and now whenever I draw mushrooms they look alot like this.
The backpack is from my imagination/memory. Drawn with my black pen and coloured with watercolour pencils.
These little guys look like a cross between sugar gliders and rats. Drawn from my imagination I guess I drew on some remembered aspects from both if not more species, I think I see a little ring tail possum too. Drawn with my trusty black pen and coloured with watercolour paints.
