So it was sketchcrawl again, and I was there. Well, this is the group. I’m the second one from the right. The others had fun too, see our forum post here. We met at deursches Museum, which is all abour science and ingeneering.
Well, this was my stab at drawing a historical aircraft. I’m never good at things that are far away.
This is a Maggi bottle from the glass and ceramics department. Maggi is the German answer to theriaki sauce. Karin gave me a waterbrush she had found in a shop recently, this does make working with water soluble pencils easier and less messy.
Afret that we had lunch break, and I bought a glass quill from a glassmaker who was demonstrating his craft at the glass departement. I tried it out on the coke bottle next to the maggi bottle. The wine glass was mostly done using ink and the waterbrush. The brown thing is a wooden needle from the stone age.
After another coffee break, I tried my hand at the model of a primitive windmill. Same problem as with the aircraft, but it turned out better because the model was smaller.
We had a great day, should you wish to join us next time follow the sketchcrawl forum, the next dates are already up and we will post our plans there in due time.
I actuallly managed to finish something! It was done using black crochet yarn and standard 6stranded cotton floss.
It was woven on the same cardboard loom as my last finished woven item. Sadly, it came out somewhat distorted, probably I should sting the frame once more and keep trying. As you can see, I’ve stayed with the desert sun theme. I guess now I’m ready to write the last installment of my weaving tutorial series.
