Week 40 Compilation Board!
Week Forty in a snapshot 🙂
280 days down, 85 days to go…
Day 278 – Blindfolded Fairy
Drawn with a coloured biro on some white paper whilst blindfolded. This was a lot more tricky than I envisaged that it would be but I’m actually pleasantly surprised how fairy-like it looks.
Day 218 – Red Biro Fairy
Drawn freehand using a red Biro pen onto some plain white paper.
Day 200 – Drawn in the Dark Fairy
Drawn in the dark using swirling strokes with a biro on a napkin whilst traveling back home from our holidays.
Day 98 – Geometric Fairy
I drew this using a ruler and a black biro. I drew a practice outline in pencil on another piece of paper and copied the shape onto a fresh piece of paper using a ruler to ensure there were only straight lines for the outline.
Once I had completed the outline, I continued to use the ruler to join the various connecting lines into triangular and geometric shapes. I left the shoes as they were to make her a bit more recognisable as Tinkerbell.
Day 41 – Poetic Fairy
To celebrate World Poetry Day today, I have composed a poem (the first in over a decade!) and tried to keep the words within a vague fairy shape. To make it more clear that the words are written in a deliberate shape, I drew the outline of a fairy in black biro on paper and, after scanning it, super-imposed the text of my poem on top of the image.
Depending on the device you are using, you may not be able to read the text clearly on the image so here is the wording in full:
Peeking between the branches on this fine Spring morning – what is that I can see?
A flash of movement and a tinkle of a bell – what, oh what, could it be?
As I look a bit closer, I see some colourful wings –
These are certainly the most beautiful, intricate things.
Surely, oh surely, it cannot be what I think!
A fairy? For real? Wow – I don’t want to blink!
Will she disappear if I avert my eyes?
Am I imagining this magical surprise?
As she flutters around I cannot help but stare,
This sighting must be so incredibly rare!
Her tiny frame is as delicate as a petal –
As she dances around she is ever so graceful.
Her laughter is as bright as sunshine,
Her hair as silky as spider’s twine,
She looks at me and smiles and I cannot help but join her.
As quick as she came she was gone and I was left to look on in wonder.
Day 38 – Dot to Dot Fairy
I have decided to create another interactive fairy for you today! I drew the features and occasional lines in black biro pen on white paper, scanned it and then used a dot-to-dot creator online to add the dots in the required places. I added the stars on number 1 and 82 so it is easier to see where the challenge starts and finishes!
This took a little longer than anticipated and was more tricky than you might imagine – having to ensure every single dot was clear and not overlapping as well as ensuring that it flowed well. Not bad for a first attempt…
