This icad was inspired by a photograph I took while on holiday at Deal- Lights on the Horizon at Night.
I again used 4 and 6B pencils, to smudge the colour. I like this style… I think it makes the different areas of lightness merge more smoothly, and the colour looks more solid.
You should try it If you want very light areas, put occasional lines or dashes and smudge them, or smudge a dark area of colour into the white space with your fingertip to get a light area of colour.
This is Lights on the Horizon at Night, the inspiration of my icad… a dark, abstract photograph, with a boat out at sea, its lights shining across the ocean:
In the morning, we went to our friend’s house. Next time, I am going to buy a LEGO Power Miners set off them for £5. We had some gluten free, wheat free, dairy free cakes which their mum had baked specially for us, and cooked herself. Then, we did some clay modeling. I built a submarine which their mum will fire and a pot on her kiln. Next time we go round there or they come round here, they’ll give us our clay models.
When they do come, I’ll take some pictures of my pot to show you. It’s a bit of a Dr. Seuss pot, but I’m pleased with it
