The three drawings above were all inspired by the Wonder31 “Pinwheel” prompt (#7). Wonder31 is a free-form, open prompt series from Daisy Yellow. I love prompt sets because they provide challenge and they remove some of the “what should I draw” question that can be a stumbling block for some sketchbook keepers and people who draw daily. I haven’t explored the Wonder31 prompts fully yet, mostly because I am still really enjoying using Sktchy as a resource for my daily drawings. But for some reason, “Pinwheel” caught my fancy.
I spent time searching for photos to draw, and over the course of three days, I drew the three images you see here. Each is slightly different in concept and style, and one is not truly pinwheel-focused. For some reason, the blowing of the dandelion was similar enough in the third image to make the three sketches hold together for me as a set and a series. I like all three of these, for different reasons, and these three stand together as part of the nightly portrait drawing I have been doing in recent months.
