Clock mechanisms were the theme of homework over half term. So I made one.
Here are all the Inktober sketches, plus a few extras, and one watercolour.
Here’s a Halloween Extinction Rebellion Cambridge College Divestment Crawl.
The official Inktober prompt today is “OMINOUS”. I was finding it hard to interpret that as a drawing from life so I was asking my daughter to help think of a nice object to draw. We had been thinking about time-telling apparatus for her homework and she suggested a sun dial. Then she remembered the one at the Downing Site, outside the Sedgewick Museum with multiple Gnomons and whch, therefore, is truly Gnomonous.
This is the first time this month I have drawn from a photo (actually a still from a video) rather than from life. It was too cold and windy to go in the garden to draw a spade and fork. And, I’ve been wanting to do one of these all month. I love the round shape of the engine hood.
