This hat was a Christmas gift from Mom (aka Mumsy) & Dad and I love it! Ive got a couple of other winter ones that are also pretty kewel. Its a bit chilly in the ole stone cottage tonight, and I didnt feel starting a fire in the front room, so I layered some clothes and put my hat on. Then I did my self portrait in pencil. I liked the look of it, and didnt want to possibly ruin it, so I scanned it and dropped colour into it via photoshop. Glad I did because I like the original just a tad more than the coloured one.
Real watercolor wouldve been nicer of course, but I thought Id experiment. It was fun!
I want to thank my family and husband for the wonderful encouragement they have given me lately!! More than once its made me pick up the pencil when I might have otherwise avoided drawing.
Tomorrow I begin Vein of Gold and my 20 minute walks! Gus will be loving it. I am also going to start a 30 day grid of 1.5 squares to draw in, as a part of a group project started by the Everyday Matters (Danny Gregory) yahoo group. Well all be scanning our pages at the end of the month, so Ill post mine here. Wonder what itll be like to draw in such a small space? I find it hard enough to sketch in a 8.5 by 5 space! Havent done thumbnails in a while..
Anyway..that means its bedtime!
I can smell the weekend in the air!! Mmm..smells like we might invite some peeps over….you know who you are! Miss you guys! Still havent discussed Samoa!!! We shall call tomorrow!!!
