Trying to get out of my dark creative rut gave me a world of opportunity to try and draw something completely out of my comfort zone.
This is my first time trying water on its own. I love some of the stock images of splashes and tried to use what I could find on the internet as a reference for this drawing.
It’s a first try, so I’m happy I had a go, but after waiting a few days to review the work I can see lots of opportunities for improvement. But, overall, it’s a new string in my bow and I’ll keep trying until I produce something that’s as accurate as I feel I can get.
I think my next drawing adventure will probably be another brighter piece. I don’t want to keep focussing on flowers and I really loved the change in colour palette for the splash.
I’d like to try some accurate faces, eyes, hands and feet, but I struggle with people and anatomy. I guess it’s something I’ll have to keep trying.
Next up I’d like to try something I can see in reality rather than using the internet as a reference. Maybe some foliage on a tree in the wind, a pathway or a beautiful plant. I’ll try and take some inspiration from what’s out of my windows!
Let me know what you think of my work so far and any thoughts or comments on the splash would be great!
