We were camping over these days but I brought my sketchbook and packed my pens knowing I could manage a few minutes to draw. I even brought a head of garlic so I’d have a model at hand once our tent was set up.
The pumpkin was soon carved into a jack-o-lantern while the grapes kept me from the chips and dip. Another successful camping weekend done!
Cleaning out some of the older produce before they go off. The tomatoes were getting a little soft.
… and look at that poor lone banana! Too ripe for me already… I like them with just a touch of green near the stem.
I see banana bread in my future.
The plan was to draw this little gourd sometime over the weekend but… totally my fault… I left it out on my back steps for nearly an hour giving our resident squirrels free access.
Must be tasty.
Yes, it’s October and that means Inktober!
This is the fourth year I’m participating but this year I’m not going to use any of the official prompts or any Sktchy photos as I did last year.
What I will be doing is drawing various produce using assorted waterproof and water-soluble inks in a Strathmore 500 Mixed Media Journal with pre-painted spreads. A friend in one of my art-related Facebook groups suggested this as a daily challenge… not necessarily for Inktober. She jokingly named it Daily Potato and, even though our scope of subjects has already expanded beyond potatoes, the name has stuck.
Thinking of joining Inktober and still looking for this year’s prompts? You can find the list at the link above … or…..
Remember… I’m not using the prompts. Peppers are not poisonous!
