This past week was one hectic week for me. Diwali, the most important festival in India, was being celebrated with a lot of pomp and joy. Then, there is an ongoing blogging challenge I am participating in that requires me to write two posts per week and visit some wonderful blogs. And, then there is this ink drawing challenge that I love so much!
So, hectic it was, but I enjoyed the tension that comes along with all the activity, all the stress of completing posts and drawings in time. Of reading some really riveting works by talented writers and watching with awe the stupendous art work on display for the Inktober.
I managed to make ink drawings as well as I could, but missed out on one day. I will make a drawing for that day some time soon and add it to this series, for sure.
Sharing here, this week’s drawings. Do visit Instagram for some more splendid artworks with the hashtag #inktober2017. You will be amazed by the talent on display there!
I drew this woman wearing a masquerade mask to show how we are so oblivious of the real face that hides behind the mask. A mask that could be a smile, or even a smirk!
I drew this candle for Diwali…to wish my dear ones a very happy Diwali!
Being extremely busy with the Diwali celebrations, I couldn’t post a drawing on this day.
I drew this dragonfly for a dear friend. She loves these dainty little creatures with their transparent wings…well, who doesn’t? I love them, too!
This mandala design was my very first attempt. I was quite nervous, frankly, but am glad it came out pretty well!
This bow and arrow was for a friend who is a Sagittarian. I hope she likes it.
I am always fascinated by the Sun….the source of energy, of life on earth. I simply had to make a Zentangle drawing of this massive fire-ball!
The Maple leaf is a personal favourite. I just love its vibrant colours, and its unique shape. Sadly, we don’t find it here, in India. Else, I would have a leaf in every page of my personal diary!
So, that’s all for this week. The next week will be the last of Inktober this year. I hope I am able to make every drawing much more special for the finale.
See you next Sunday!
Bye and take care!
