I wish I could say that I've cleaned up
my desks, I did do it in my mind
but the hands weren't willing.
It's really neat if you look past all the junk
There are four desks in my room,
if you look hard enough.
To the right is my big 'L' shaped desk,
at the back is my inking desk,
in the middle is my mobile desk
and to the left is my credenza/desk.
Actually I have an extra one,
on the floor is my tub full of desky things.
This is what I take to class and it's full of all sorts
of painty things like paint (duh), brushes, glazes,
Here is my inking station, wow, that sounds very official
it's really just a space to put all my inks and bits.
As you can see, all very well organised
Despite this mess and my teacher
trying to give me heart attacks,
I've nearly finished three paintings.
|Love the colours but have to paint in his face yet.|
|Boat colours are roughed in and needs to be finished.|
|Needs a little bit more colour in a few spots.|
If you're wondering what the title is all about,
I have joined a sketch book class
and was trying to practise before it begins.
One exercise is to look at a cup and draw it
without looking, sounds easy and probably should be,
as long as you are not me.
I had an almighty row going on in my brain when I tried this.
You see, your eyes are supposed
to tell your brain what they see
and then the brain is supposed to tell the hand
what to draw but in my case
my hand is very strong willed and it was yelling at my eyes
saying it's always done the drawing and
back off eyes or else.
You can imagine how noisy it was getting
in my little brain with the tooing and froing
between my eyes and hand.
Needless to say, the hand won this round,
(the drawing was terrible)
my brain has no right or left side
just a muddle in the middle
and my eyes don't want to play any more.
This is going to be a long and
very noisy (in my brain)
sketch book course,
just hope I survive.
Wonder if the eyes will
eventually win the war.
While my hands and eyes are still working,
on the keyboard at least,
I'll end off
but first why not hop over to
and see the the more normal people
are doing on this
work desk wednesday.
I finished my Sailboat picture the other day.
