The crap artist awakens for the first time in a long time. Joining Janet's Sketchaway course I thought I'd knock out a study of a typical breakfast moment - the empty coffee cup in pen. #thecrapartist
Day 1436 - #thecrapartist - Castle at Coroni, Greece.
Day 1432 - #thecrapartist - Gazebo, various shrubs, and view of the sea and mountains, at Villa Inn Messinia, Kalamaki, Greece.
Day 1431 - #thecrapartist - view from Kalamaki towards the mountains of Sparta across Kalamata bay, Greece. The crap artist has learnt much from this - use a bigger brush for a big mountain range, get the horizon straight, poplars grow vertically, the sea needs to be much more delicate as it looks stormy,...
Day 1430 - #thecrapartist - Kalamata bay watercolour with notes on sky, mountains, sea, and poplars.
Day 1429 - #thecrapartist - view from Villa Inn Messinia up the hill. A bit of wide angle artistry incorporating the low terrace walls and balcony of one of the bedrooms. Much greenery has been painted and the purple-flowering plant has been attempted.
Day 1428 - #thecrapartist - View from Villa Inn Messinia across Kalamata Bay towards Kitries, Greece.
Day 1428 - #thecrapartist - Villa Inn Messinia, Petalidi, Greece with bather (pro artist). The crap artist is in the Mediterranean sampling the burnt umber and sap green tones of the countryside and learning to speak in watercolour.
Day 1411 - #thecrapartist - in clinic, slow running as patients held up having scans. A quick scribble sketch. This uses the new wonder tool of the crap artist - the 0.05mm Uni Pin Fine Line marker - which another artist was using on a recent trip to Rome.
Day 1408 - #thecrapartist - Garden steps and foliage. Supportive advice from the pro artist was to use a sponge to build up foliage. Will now have to invest in a sponge - an expensive watercolour sponge of course.
Day 1406 - #thecrapartist - Roman doorway with Madonna and child. Quite happy with the brass colour on the foot of the door - but perhaps not so with the angle. Copying a smaller sketch to the larger 'masterpiece' was really time consuming and forgot to correct the perspective of the step.
Day 1406 - #thecrapartist - Il Bollo Apartments, Vicolo del Bollo, Rome. A bit of water colour sketching whilst sat on a stool on the junction of small back streets somewhere in Rome. The last minute wash of brown colour was a bit rash ... since it doesn't represent anything in the actual view and just...
Day 1405 - #thecrapartist - Colosseum of Rome. One does not simply sketch the Colosseum (or more correctly the Flavian Amphitheatre) as can be seen from this strange perspective in pen. There are far more arches than initially meets the eye, all with different orientation, there layers are large discs...
Day 1404 - #thecrapartist - pen sketch of the skyline in Rome as seen from the terrace of Hotel Relais Monti, via Urbana, Rome. There were of course 5 windows per floor not 4 and some shutters were open ... but ... such is the power of the artist to simplify (even if partly by accident). The top floor...
Day 1127 - #thecrapartist - Tuscan skyline Watercolour ... interrupted ... but a small masterpiece in itself.
Day 246 - #thecrapartist - Sketches in Venice Some sketches this morning in the drizzle. Stood on one of those classic Venetian bridges over a canal trying to ignore the complexities of passing Gondolas and tourists with suitcases. The buildings are all at different angles and festooned with windows...
Day 55 - #thecrapartist - watercolour washes Exploring watercolour washes with Essaouira views and Arabic patterns.
Day 54 - #thecrapartist. Fantasy tower Pointless 3 point perspective of fantasy Moroccan architecture. Extra tall tower
Day 52 - #thecrapartist - street food. About lunch time in Morocco - street scene featuring some dribbles from Clare's fish tagine.
Day 29 - #thecrapartist. Daisies in pen.
