I've had a busy week
but not in the art room,
Little Miss had a fight with a
softball in school sport last Friday
and the softball won.
She had a bloodshot and very swollen
eye, nose, and cheekbone
so there were lots of kisses and cuddles.
Then I was still waiting for the double sided tape to arrive,
which it finally did, late on monday afternoon.
So I could finish my Egbert Notebooks
Today I had to run errands in the morning
but now I'm in drawing mode.
The Theme for this weeks APR is Pen, Ink and Paper
so I have started a pencil drawing of my hand
holding a pen
and hope to ink it tomorrow.
So, at last, here is my desk.
I'm in the family room again today as it's too cold in the office.
These are my dads drafting pens from the old days and I decided to draw them
for the APR theme.
This is still early stages
and looking at this photo,
the pens look a little drunk.
Will have to fix that.
If you are wondering how I drew my hand,
I'm left handed and held a pen in my right
and pencil in my left.
Once I get the shading and proportions right,
I will have a go at inking it.
Haven't done a proper ink drawing in years,
so fingers crossed.
I'm never alone when I draw in the family room.
Charlie the parrot is right behind me,
Smudge the guinea pig is just to my right
and the chooks are at the window next to me.
Here is a photo of my Egbert Books.
I think they look quite cute.
I've put one in my Etsy shop to see how it goes.
Well, I had better get back to my drawing.
Why don't you pop on over to Julia's
Stamping Ground and see what
everyone else has on their desk
Hope you all enjoy the Olympics,
I'll be watching.
