Travel and Art based on Inktober 31 days=31 drawings fun challenge. The last Inktober 2021 prompt is Risk.
For this prompt I did the ink drawing of the First Spasewalk by Alexei Leonov in 1965 in spacecraft Vostok-2. It was not only First space walk but an act of bravery of a human. The first of the earthlings to go out into outer space may well have failed to return to their home planet… In addition, Leonov was the artist and did his space’s paintings right on a space ship looking outside to the Earth!:) There couple links about Alexei Leonov, the artist and the astronaut are below.
My favorite expression is “Risk is a noble cause:) All astronauts are Heroes and romantics at the same time:) There is a movie Spacewalk (2017) with English sibtitles.Highly recommend it.
This was the last of Inktober 2021 prompts’ ink drawing. It was the 1st year of participating in the challenge and I finished all 31 prompts for Inktober 2021. Well, did I learnt something from this Challenge? It was easy? Did I enjoy the process? Will I do it again in future, the same way or differently? First of all, I’ve learnt some new English words:) Secondly, an ink drawings was my quite rare tool before. Usually I am painting with watercolour and oil. My progress is better that I even expected, and next, I am glad that I didn’t check it out other artists’ drawings for a prompt before I painted. It was a good decision do not mix it with my own ideas about a subject, and it was interesting to see other ideas afterwords. As an example, prompt Connect I did completely different from my collegues:))) And mainly, during Inktober I was “travelling” through my memory, dreams, our vacation photos in France, Spain, Italy, USA, Canada, Belarus, Germany, Greece and travelling with Time Machine and Space (imaginary!:). And all my Inktober ink drawings are telling their own stories and dreaming about some future advantages, and in future I will do my daily sketches with my new favourite tool Ink!:). The main conclusion, I love this challenge, a little bit proud that I didn’t stop in the middle of the month (it was not easy for me and distiplinary challenge:), and I will do Inktober and other Challenges in the following years.
