This week’s word prompts are – Fishing – Owl – Dominoes – Altar – Christmas
This is a difficult one; fishing and Christmas don’t usually mix unless we are in some exotic holiday location? Do exotic holiday locations have owls? Good luck with this one.
For more art by me, please take a look at my Deviant Art gallery.
Today starts a month of artistic challenges called “Inktober” where artists all over the world make art via inks as a primary material. My son Henry and I are both lovers of this month and we usually make an effort to produce at least one finished work each day during Inktober. We are huge fans of sharpies and Windsor Newton inks.
Henry will be concentrating mostly on cars and robots whilst I will concentrate on anything I fancy at the time, today I quite fancy getting into the Halloween mood already with a cauldron and some candies!
Therefore we shall be posting daily on both this blog and DeviantArt.com
Here is the first picture of the month!
Panic Attack from Robot Wars by Henry is the first to be shown below; he is a huge fan of that show, practically obsessed with it.
Panic Attack – Robot Wars Fan Art by Henry!
Here is my candy cauldron, I know it is a little bit early for Halloween but it was something I wanted to do right now – Henry isn’t letting me live it down, says I should have waited until Halloween before I did it, but I do tend to do a lot of horror or dark themes when I do art anyway, if not that then fantasy and cartoon stuff.
Candy Cauldron by me!
This week’s writing prompts are – A rabbit hole – river – being lost – Serpent – oranges
Autumn is the crisp morning dew followed by golden sunshine and rains of multi-coloured leaves
Everything crunching under foot with a satisfying crunch, scrunch, crunch
Delicious spices fill the air with pies, casseroles and soups
Harvest time for all, pumpkins, squashes, apples and more
Cheeky children knocking at Halloween’s door, begging for candies and little treats
You have to give it to them, they are so sweet
Dew drops start to freeze in the cooling air
Summer is gone without a care
Soon it shall be winter
Bonfires burn and glow, fireworks emblazon the night skies
The fire is filled to the brim with wood, hear it snap, snap snap to a crisp in the heat
Winter shall be here in a heart beat
Under trees I walk
Merrily I step into autumn
Never too cold or warm – it always pleases me
This week’s writing prompts are – A blacksmith – An Attic – Princess – Bus – A death
Learning the recorder and how to read music is working out pretty well for me, I have only been learning this for two week today and already I can play the first four lines of Clair De Lune with few mistakes and a shaky and squeaky Ode to Joy! It’s especially impressive as I have been trying to practise with a stuffed up nose this week.
I am going to try to set up a YouTube or Patreon video about my musical progresses as well as other things too, but mostly about the music. I haven’t really thought what to do yet, but I am working on it. I am hoping to do this for the New Year but I will say I make no promises regarding this.
The prompts for the week are – Glass – Harmonica – Giant – Knolls – A birth
Always a pleasure
That art is freedom, it is pure bliss!
