It’s that time again! I had so much fun doing the Inktober and Drawloween prompts last year, so I am very excited to get started on this year’s challenge. Last year I did a mixture of the two prompt lists and used all sorts of different media, but this year I am going to try and stick to the one list and do mainly ink drawings. Of course that is subject to change. I really like coming up with creative solutions within the limiting structure of the prompts, but I do not want to get too legalistic about it. If I feel moved to draw something different, or to paint or sculpt instead, then I will.
Day 1: Ring
“How her foolish heart sings,
at the mention of rings.”
Day 2: Mindless
“No need to remind us, it’s not news that we’re mindless.”
Day 3: Bait
The old man on the promenade
Wanted to catch a mermaid.
He found a ship’s mate
And used him as bait,
Then cast out his line and prayed.
Day 4: Freeze
“If memories of that summer breeze
could be enough to melt this freeze…”
Day 5: Build
“Even if you are basically unskilled
it is simple to destroy what you build.”
Day 6: Husky
After a day that went so long,
nothing like a drink and a song.
Let me buy you another round.
We’ll listen to her husky sound.
Day 7: Enchanted
I am so enchanted by Erik Satie;
His music touches a place deep inside me.
Day 8: Frail
Fen on Bluff Mountain
Nature’s balance seems so frail
Yet in drought… a bloom.
Day 9: Swing
Okay, so here’s the thing, not sure why she must swing…
Day 10: Pattern
The pattern is there, just follow with care.
Day 11: Snow
Tonight no sighs or tales of woe, it’s quiet in the falling snow.
