Paint Party Friday: Energy Saver bulb

I was feeling quite sick yesterday so was not going to sketch at all for Paint Party Friday but then, when 10 o'clock hit last night, I started feeling a little guilty despite having a good excuse. I had been very pleased with myself in meeting the different art challenge commitments the past few weeks and I just couldn't let it slide.  So I dragged my sick bod over to my art desk and chose to do a quick ink sketch of the spent Philips Energy Saver light-bulb sitting on my desk awaiting disposal. I couldn't take a decent photo with the artificial lighting last night so I quickly snapped one this morning. Still not a good photo but time is of the essence as I'm already running late by Aussie time.

Sketch - Philips Energy Saver light-bulb sketched directly with pen then followed up with some sumi ink which I painted on with a brush for shading.

OH my! I just went to get the current link from the Paint Party Friday blog for this week, only to see that one of my sketches has been featured in their post. How lovely! Thanks, Kristin and Eva!

Now, I'm even more relieved that I didn't let this week slide by due to sickness.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

  2. aw, big hugs and hope you're feeling a lot better (sending a cooling breeze to you).
    Congratulations for your feature on PPF's page - your sketch is stunning and, yes, such a lovely thing for you to see it there!
    PPF really spurs our creative juices doesn't it. Your light bulb is a beauty and long may it shine ;D) (one of our long-lifers was a bit of a dud ha ha). Cheers now and Happy PPF!

  13. Fabulous drawing, especially when I read that you sketched it directly with pen - and all those proportions look perfect!

    1. Thanks, Tracy. I love working with pen directly. I think it makes me pay attention to proportions more even though they aren't always perfect, I can still work with it. :)
