After several months of delay, finally yesterday I got a chance to visit the nearby art shop to buy my paint stuff. Initially I decided to buy water colours for sketching but I could not afford that since I do not get enough pocket money. Okay! It may seem like I am complaining but actually I am not. I know my parents are giving me THEBEST they can but since I don’t earn for myself so I am always deficient of the money thing. But over the years I have actually adapted and learned to cope up and live with whatever I have and I just thank my Lord enough for everything.
Anyways I saw water colour pencils of all shades and decided to buy a few as an alternative since they were cheaper and I had no doubt on the quality as well. Yet again I could not afford all of them so I just took a few shades of blue.
I am always very eager and excited to use any art thing that I buy so immediately after reaching home I started off with the blues. Just a rough piece of paper and a few sea waves.
The colours don’t seem pretty much obvious in the picture but I actually spent 2 hours while doing this all. I know 2 hours are just too much but I am quite a slow and thrift one in these things.
Although I’ve not been currently involved in any of art related activities so far mainly because of my exams and chiefly because of my mood swings you can say.I decided to share some of my previous sketches.
Drawing horses has always been challenging.Their thigh region,their muscular structure and their belly is not as easy to get right at the very first go.I had a hard time drawing their belly,I erased it for like more than ten times before I was satisfied.
This site mentioned in the end has been a tremendous help to every feature and every posture of the horse I desired to draw.Okay so this has been the first sketch so far.I like it and I had the same image in mind while making it.
Another one that I made was a total mishap.I didn’t like it and it did not turn out to be exactly how I wanted.The main idea was to draw a unique horse posture so I selected two horses in an upright galloping position as indicated in this picture.
I tried to make a few changes in the faces and the posture but Alas! not too good. So i entitled it as “So afraid of Making mistakes”.
Although my sketch didn’t come out to be up to that mark but still I am sharing it because I think you should share your mistakes as well with your achievements and capability in your work.
And lastly here is a collage of Eight different horses in different postures. It involves horses in real life and a few ones from fictional characters like the Pegasus and the Unicorn.
I have only used 2B,4B,6B and 8B pencils and no charcoal.
“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. It matters that you don't just give up." - Stephen Hawking (Died March 14th 2018 on Albert Einsteins Birthday & on the same day Galileo died. R.I.P. You Will Be Missed . . . )
