30 days of creativity – Day 18 – It seems I am a fucking hippy

30 day creativity challenge Day  18, Glastonbury Tor

It seems I might be a fucking hippy after all. Sitting on top of Glastonbury Tor makes me feel good. Apart from when some wanker comes along and inflicts us all with his musical instrument, then the kill instinct comes out good and strong and I feel more like myself.

My son joined in today by racing round taking pictures.

The first sketch was of the field opposite where I was sat in the shade trying to filter out screaming children and happy fucking bastard families.

This is what it really looked like, though the camera’s perspective is different to mine. I think I was higher up. I was playing with concentrating on shadows more than anything.

Then I thought I was being a bit wishy washy with my line so I got out a Sharpie and drew the next field along. This was good fun to do and looked better before I tried to shade it with a fineliner.

Lastly today was a sketch of people sitting on the hill next to the church on top of the Tor. I get so far with a sketch then I’m scared to put in detail in case I mess it up. Seems to be a bit of a block.

These are some of the pictures my son took, before we went down the hill and got some spring water, like the fucking hippies we are.

Over on Crackbook a bunch of us are going to be working through Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain: A Course in Enhancing Creativity and Artistic Confidence

The first exercises are to draw a self portrait, your hand and something else I can’t remember so you can see improvement. Then you move onto drawing a vase from a silhouette. You can see the vase exercise here – http://drawright.com/vaceface.htm.

The plan is to do an exercise every Sunday from the book.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

30 days of creativity – Day 15 – Fucking Glastonbury tor and lots of swearing.

30 day creativity challenge Day  15, Glastonbury tor.

I’m not a fucking hippy trust me, but I did need to get some exercise and blow some cobwebs out of my stupid mind that is full of what if’s and if onlys. I was hoping to get to the charity shops because my retro Denby came from Glastonbury but I have a very low tolerance of crystals and fucking dreamcatchers make me pull wings off fairies.

It started raining about half way up the hill, and I did this quick sketch of the door of the church at the top of the hill, I was sat in the relative dry (stupid thing has no roof) but the raindrops made it really difficult to draw anything so I stopped and was menacing to a fucking hippy instead. Only indirectly menacing; I told him I liked the music he was making with his Indian hippy flute thing, then I told him that it was lucky he wasn’t a drummer because I would have thrown him down the hill if he was. I hate fucking drummers.

Which made me feel lots better.

Along side it comes a Haiku, maybe I am a fucking hippy after all.

I have cried so much

I got cramps from lack of salt

I hope it stops soon
