Sketchy Business
Topic: Drawing

I guess I missed posting links to a couple of the Drawing Room lessons that I illustrated for Creative Bible Journaling.

We'll start with the one posted today.

Click here:  http://creative-bible-journaling.com/drawing-room-dr216-spiral-rose/  for a lesson on making this spiral rose.


 

The week prior I taught this hourglass.

You can get those instructions here: http://creative-bible-journaling.com/drawing-room-dr215-hourglass/

Now I can't remember if I posted the lesson for this waterfall! 

If I already posted it you can ignore this. If not... here is the link:

Hope you enjoy following these lessons.

Drawing Room - Hearts
Topic: Drawing

The new Drawing Room downloads have been posted on the Creative Bible Journaling site.

This week I drew up multiple styles of hearts to be used in their Bibles since it was Valentine's Day.

You can go download a 'Tangled Heart' and a 'Filigree Heart'at  http://creative-bible-journaling.com/drawing-room-tutorial-102-hearts-filigree-and-tangled/

Here are the samples:



In addition to these, I drew up three more to post later in the week. No breakouts of the steps in the pictures but easy to follow along on the bullet points.


Feel free to download these lessons for your own use.

The Drawing Room is Open!
Topic: Drawing

I've been mentioning for some time the Bible Journaling Facebook page that I joined last year. I found them through an 'advertisement' on my Facebook feed. I first got involved with the weekly lessons in the Lettering Lodge and eventually became a co-leader of that topic thread. Then, at the first of the year, I started participating in the 'Devo Den' where we are working through a daily devotional book that includes coloring. I also began following along in the 'Scripture Writing Desk' where we write out the assigned scripture of the day.

In the midst of all that, I became interested in providing a way to help others draw simple illustrations to use in their Bible journaling. I suggested a new thread called 'The Drawing Room' and volunteered to staff it.

So, today is the first posting there! I do step-by-step drawings followed by a finished color version and write simple directions. Susan makes the lessons look consistent with a banner, frames, typing the instructions and posting to both the Facebook page (member site) and the website (where resources are open to everyone).

I can't direct you to the Facebook page but you can see and download the resources from the website at http://creative-bible-journaling.com/the-drawing-room-lesson-101-wavy-rose/ 

While you're there, have a look around, there may be more resources you'd like to access!

This is what the first lesson teaches:


This will become a regular, weekly thread (new lesson every Wednesday) on the Creative Bible Journaling site. I will link new lessons here - finished artwork only - so you can go download the lesson if you wish.

The Drawing Room
Topic: Drawing

When we were in Los Angeles last year we spent a couple of hours at The Getty Center and wished we had much more time there. So, earlier this week, we made time for it and flew down to spend two days viewing all the artwork on display.

What a treat! There is something magical in standing in front of a painting of irises by Van Gogh, a sculpture by Degas, a landscape by Monet... To see the brushstrokes, fingerprints in the paint, chisel marks of a master - it is almost overwhelming.

One small section of the museum is an area called The Drawing Room in which a small-scale statue, a couple of marble busts and several paintings are displayed. There are benches with built-in easels around the room and you are provided with paper, a large clipboard and a packet of drawing materials.

With these supplies you can sit and draw - with the sculptures and paintings as inspiration. What Fun!

I selected one of the busts and drew in sepia conte crayon. Here is my model:


And here is my finished work - about 1/2 hour of time invested:


For anyone who desires, they will put your work up on the bulletin board. Thus one can say they have work hanging in The Getty!

All Tied Up In Knots
Topic: Drawing

I had some questions on another forum on how I drew the knots in the fish net on this page:


So I decided to put together a short tutorial for everyone.








If you're going to draw elements behind the net, do so now before you go on to the coloring. Otherwise, the coloring could be rubbed away when erasing the pencil sketch lines for the fish or whatever is filling your net.

To color the net:



Yeah, I didn't erase my pencil lines before coloring on this tutorial - but you will do that!

All Drawn Out
Topic: Drawing

I have been doodling for as long as I can remember. It got me in trouble when I was in grade school as I used to use up my tablets with doodles instead of with my practice of printing and arithmetic.

In class lectures in high school and college I had just as many doodles in the margins as I had notes. Fortunately, I could look at what I had drawn and remember what the teacher had been talking about.

Later, sermon notes included many little designs that later became cards or scrapbook page sketches. 

I am not one to carry a sketchbook along with me (just one more thing for an already heavy purse) so I don't sketch much 'on the fly'.

I do have a sketch pad that I can use when I intentially sit down to do some doodles, though.

I use an eversharp number 2 pencil because I can't stand the way regular pencils get dull so fast. I use a Mars eraser as it is easy on the paper surface. 


When I have a doodle or sketch I like I use permanent marker to ink it and then erase the pencil lines.

These get clipped out and filed for future reference.

After refining further, they might be turned into a sketch for a card, a rubber stamp to carve, or a watercolor design.
