I'm not sure how you would
describe this last week.
I kinda did quite a bit but
at the same time got nowhere fast.
My desk is over at the back today.
The pink blobs are bags of texture paste that
I'm piping and knifing onto a bird canvas.
The dirty water, that I thought I'd cleaned up,
is from Sketchbook Skool and check out that
fabulous sprayer. That's for my next inking.
No more pumping a little handle,
this bad boy just sprays on command.
My Sketchbook Skool homework was to get
three things and draw them using a continuous
line and then water colour it.
The drawing went sort of okay but I did
have a blonde moment after the drawing.
That is a whole other story and if you want to see
it's here in my last post.
My water colouring skills are not great
but at least I tried.
|I wish I could say using water colour paper would have saved it but I don't think anything could save this.|
I did get another canvas drawn up and
undercoated and I'm really happy with that.
See, who needs water colour when you can play
with big blobby things.
This is what I'm doing with the pink and green gloop
in the bags.
I've just started putting in the very back leaves
and I'll build up over these with the closer leaves.
I did a little bit of adjusting
to my seagulls in class.
Sorry about the angle, I just can't get
the hang of my phone camera.
Plus I'm too short to get over the top of it.
It's pretty much finished now.
I just have to paint in the birds eyes
and then I can finally photograph it upright.
So you see, I sorta did a lot
but really didn't get far with anything.
Well that's my rather boring desk
for this week.
So why not hop on over to
and see what is on the other desks
around the world.
Sorry it wasn't very funny today,
I'm still in shock at the cost
of Little Miss's braces.
I have a savings account called
"my new kitchen fund"
and in two weeks time Little Miss
will be walking around with my
new kitchen in her mouth (sigh).
