I’ve once again really enjoyed looking at what each word has prompted, been intrigued and inspired by each finished chart. Hard to choose a favourite image, but most poignant (given the Grenfell Tower inquiry and the fires in Glasgow) is Eddie’s choice for “danger”.
From Margaret, who said: “When I saw the number of animals on this months word chart — I thought ‘Oh Dear’. But am surprisingly quite happy at how they turned out. I can’t decide if the hippopotamus or the elephant is my favourite. I’m afraid the puffin and the giraffe don’t look quite right. Still, another enjoyable month.”
I’ve been doing my word prompts in my book version of the charts that I want to use as my display copy at Patchings Art Festival. I’ve found I tend to not do it every day, but rather doing two or three every few days, using watercolour, coloured pencils, or just pencil as the mood takes me, a relaxation with afternoon tea. When it came to all the animals, I was trying to work from memory rather than look up reference photos. I found I couldn’t visualise where the black and red and white on a woodpecker are at all!
July’s chart can be downloaded here. Have fun!
