A Splash of Colour Contest

Without colour, the world around us would be a dull place. Colour is everywhere, and plays an important role our lives. We pick flowers because we like their colours, we paint our houses in colours we like. With the Word Cup going on, soccer fans from all over the world dress in their national colours. Colour can raise you up, can soothe and relax you or maybe just make you see a normal object in a different way.
As artists, we know that choosing the right colour can make or break art. Colour also sets the tone and atmosphere, sometimes conveying a strong message to the viewer.

However, if all colour is left out, that too sends a strong message. We have all seen black and white art that would’ve been a great deal less impressive if it were displayed in bright colours. In art, sometimes the absence of colour can strike harder than even the origanal original colours. Focus is brought

Blue Tit Sketch
A sketch of a Eurasian blue tit I made for #6MusicArt on Twitter. I love Mary Anne Hobbs's weekend breakfast show, and the art weekend is just joyous. I've done so many pieces while listening to her on the radio.

I've noticed bird sketching is becoming one of my things, and I'm more than fine with that. Nothing inspires me more than nature. :)

Frosty Rose
We've been well into freezing temperatures for a few days now, so of course I had to go out and take pictures of the changing scenery. This is one of the few roses that were still soldiering on a few days ago.

...and I'm finally done! I was feeling the Halloween spirit a little and thought it would be fun to play around with traditional imagery associated with it, and this is what came of it. It's a busy image, but it was supposed to be. I have a lot of ideas on how to make it better, but that's the case with a lot of my inktober pieces. For me it's more about getting something on paper, coming up with ideas, and doing it consistently. It's about experimenting and accepting imperfections. I'm so glad I managed to do participate this year -- it's been quite the journey!

I keep drawing owls perched on tree stumps/fence posts/other poles, and owls in general. I don't know why, except that it's fun. That's reason enough, right?

I loved drawing the little bat yesterday, so I decided to draw one more! I just liked the idea of the cute (vampire) bat that sees an angry and ominous jack-o-lantern and instantly loves it. They're BFFs now.

I was just going to draw a bat, but somehow that turned into this. In any case, it was mostly an excuse to draw cute animals, and it amuses me. :D

Apple blossoms! I always end up taking at least a few pictures of them in the spring when they bloom in my yard, and this year was no exception. It was also not a surprise I ended up referencing said pictures in my quest to find inspiration.

Someone anonymous on Tumblr asked for more bees, and I love bees, so here's more bees. Can I possibly write the word 'bees' more times in one sentence?

This was great fun, and I think black and white, high contrast works well. I wish I'd had the patience and time to pay more attention to the honeycomb though.

It's been quite a while since I frequented DeviantArt, about five years. I occasionally popped in, mostly to search for specific things. Now, I'll see about actually posting stuff again. 

Unfortunately, this is not the best time for this. I've had tendonitis for a year. In my drawing hand, of course, from elbow to hand. Consequently, I haven't drawn much this year. But I have a backlog to go through, and I would quite like to revisit some of that stuff. 

I'll try to go through some of the comments left on my old stuff, but I can't get though all of them. It might also be weird to answer feedback from five years ago, some of the people are bound to have drifted off dA like I did. So, this isn't an ideal situation, but I'll try to make the most of it.

Thank you to everyone who has looked at my stuff, especially if you've left me comments and never heard back. I WILL read every single one.
