Art Piasknownica - fotoGRA - Na Płasko

 
 
 

Just love this!!
 
Its not very often I put my drawings/sketches etc online... weeeell rarely- probably have done it only once or twice!
However.... when this challenge came up - here's one ...cos its one of those prompts that actually spirits action.....
 
 
For the first challenge - 'Flat photo'. Isn't it interesting?
It may be a sketch on the wall, on the floor, on a board or a simple page. Play with chalk, paint, fabric, pencils, flowers. Everything, what comes to your mind.
To make it clear: we want you to do a photo of people, animals, things or toys with a 'sketched' history.

So here is my result...
The nest of course is the sketch... and the branch (from the garden) is photographed sitting on top.



Aren't nests extraordinary !
Just look at the bird's little hand-picked (beak-picked) materials to weave into something that will be trusted to hold their babies.  Look at the feathers, pink and blue twine, even plastic bits and parts of chux super wipes!


 Art Room's nature inspiration....




A tightly woven nest.  I took my sketch from this....








Yet loved the thought of the pink and blue twine from the other nest.






Ooops, that's me  in Art Room (big smile.... with big stick in hand found in garden)






Could have spent more time with more detail... but sometimes its just nice to sketch something up, stick in a bit of colour... and not ponder too long, yet feel happy in the end.

Need to do more things like this
