Free as a butterfly

Here I took sections from a picture of a monarch butterfly and drew them in close up. The colour hasn't come out quite as bright as the real thing in these photos (my camera WILL come soon) but I thought I'd share them anyway.

Here are a couple of still life sketches I did last year at school (again rubbish quality photo). The drawing of an apple actually never got finished, I was meant to colour in the whole picture but I ran out of time, but I kinda like the black and white image with a flash of green. The lemon sketches were for an exam. Hope your week so far has been good!

Kandinsky inspired pieces...

I drew these with watercolour pencils about two years ago, I found them the other day. They're inspired by the artist Kandinsky.

Sat in the back of the car as my mum drove to my brother's school to pick him up, then to my sister's school to pick her up, then to my sister's friend's house to drop her off, then to the dance school to drop my sister-this whole business took over an hour and you can imagine how super bored I was feeling. I started playing around with the camera on my phone. I took some snaps of the views as we drove past. The blurred photos give a feeling of flying, I think the look is quite effective. I can't wait 'til the next time we go to a big city, a photo like this but of a lit-up city at night would look amazing!

Newspaper Collage

Here is a collage I made a couple of years ago. It's a self-portrait in the style of Modigliani and it's made with ripped-up pieces of newspaper. This was my first collage, so it's not great, I'll post some of my more recent collages soon. P.S. Please excuse the poor quality photos, I'm saving up for a better camera!
