Six second sketch


Sam had a brainwave recently and suggested I start doing a series of 'six second sketches' using the Vine mobile phone app which records six second videos.

Well, I tried numerous times to draw something (anything!) in six seconds and didn't get very far at all! So I decided that instead of doing the whole sketch in six seconds, I would make time lapse videos instead. I've set up a Twitter page @sixsecondsketch to share my videos and those of other artists/doodlers who'd like to get involved. Please do pop by and say hi if you're on Twitter! If you'd like me to share your little sketches and sketching videos too, just tag them with the hashtag #SixSecondSketch.

Here are the few which I've done this week.









The portraits of Daniel Radcliffe and Eddie Murphy were the last pencil sketches I did and I had in mind that I'd do one every day. I hadn't really thought about how long they would take though, so I think I'll just have to do them when I've got time.



Speaking of small works of art, I've just come across the fantastic miniature watercolour paintings of Lorraine Loot, a South African artist. She's working on a project called Postcards for Ants, a sequel to her 2013 series Paintings for Ants, both of which consist of a tiny painting for every day of the year. Do go and have a look, I guarantee you'll be in awe of her amazing talent!

As well as this new Six Second Sketch venture, I've also been working on some festive paper cut templates (I daren't mention the c-word yet!). Once I've cut them all out and taken photos, they'll be available in my Etsy Shop, so keep your eyes peeled if you're interested.


Apart from that, this doodle is still bumbling along slowly!



Thank you to those of you who commented on my Blogland Tour post, it was lovely to read your comments and I'm really happy to have discovered some new blogs!

Finally, I'd just like to urge you all to go and visit Manon at Lottie Designs & Illustrations. She's made this wonderful doll version of me after I sent her a photo! I can't wait to buy my own copy to download and assemble! I even come complete with a craft knife ready for paper cutting!

Love the little 6 second sketches Clare :)

Your paper cuts are so pristine, they're just fantastic. I love your doodle, could get lost in it! The fish in particular catches my attention though, lovely work on the scales.

Your sketches are so amazing! Loving the 6 second idea! Will follow on Twitter. Really love your doodle, the ideas you have for each little character are just amazing! It's something you could look at for ages and still not see everything. Maybe you could hide a little character in every piece you draw, for people to find? ( my youngest spends ages looking for the little duck in the usborne book stories, more than being interested in the story!

Wow, its quite mesmerising to watch those videos, i especially like the cow and the way it just seems to appear from the page. You are such a talented artist, its wonderful to watch you work :) x

Wow Clare I am really impressed! It reminds me of myself a few years ago sketching some person, I fail to remember who, but it was all in front of the camera. The sketch was no where near as good as your fab sketches! Keep it up you will love the challenge.
Then I scroll down and see the doll... haha ...nearly had a heart attack. I loved working on her every minute and I am so pleased you like her. I have learned lots from setting myself challenges including this one. So thank you for posting her or rather you.
I will do the blog hop thing today I promise :)

I've loved seeing your sketches appear on Facebook too - you are amazingly talented.

I wish I could draw! Your talent always leaves me impressed (and a teeny weeny bit green-eyed!). I'm going to show my children your post as they'll love the time-lapse drawings xx

wow, what clever drawings. You have certainly captured their likeness.

 
At 23 September 2014 at 14:48 , Blogger Clare Willcocks said...

Thank you! They're one of my favourite things to do at the moment, I find them so relaxing :)

 
At 23 September 2014 at 14:48 , Blogger Clare Willcocks said...

Thanks Mum! :D

 
At 23 September 2014 at 14:49 , Blogger Clare Willcocks said...

I love that idea Jenny! At the moment I'm reusing characters in each one, but I'll have to think of some more and just keep one the same. :D

 
At 23 September 2014 at 14:50 , Blogger Clare Willcocks said...

I know!! Isn't it great, can't wait to buy me and cut me out!

 
At 23 September 2014 at 14:55 , Blogger Clare Willcocks said...

Thank you! I had to watch them on my boyfriend Sam's computer because mine is so slow they were more like 60 second videos and kept skipping!

 
At 23 September 2014 at 15:07 , Blogger Clare Willcocks said...

Ah, Manon, I didn't want to rush you! I hope you enjoyed writing it, I certainly enjoyed reading it! Glad you like the videos, it would be great to see the one of you sketching if you still have it somewhere. I'm sure it was better than you remember!

I'm afraid I've lapsed already, I haven't done any mini portraits since Friday...weekends and work get in the way :( x

 
At 23 September 2014 at 15:08 , Blogger Clare Willcocks said...

Thanks Lucy! I'm going to have to do some more soon, wish there were more hours in the day!

 
At 23 September 2014 at 15:09 , Blogger Clare Willcocks said...

Hope they liked the videos! I think what you feel about my drawing is what I feel about your stitching - I love seeing your creations and the process photos!

Thank you :)

Having just had a little peak around your blog I have fallen for it already, it seems my mum was right when she said you are an incredible artist! It's incredible to see you draw with such ease and accuracy, I could happily watch it for hours and daydream! I especially loved the cow and dobby! Fae xo

Thanks for popping by Fae! I had a read of your Autumn Look Book post yesterday, love all the autumn images, makes me feel a little better about summer being nearly over! :D
