Today, after a bit of lunch, I watered again, and with my tea out on the sing, I read some of my new book.
I like the different styles by the different artists and so unlike most of my work. One of the exercises is to lay out a variety of drawing tools and mediums and then do quick sketches. They could be timed, something to try another day.
I’m enjoying watching a family (or two) if baby grackles in the yard this year. They do live the birdbath.
On the first page, I used, pen, pencil, a stabillo in black, watercolour pencil and Neocolor II crayons plus a bit of wash.
Next I drew a coneflower onto children’s craft foam and loosely cut around it. I used the crayons on it, spritzed with water, stamped and then added some thin black pen lines. I’m really trying to loosen up. This is something I plan to experiment with more.
I am content if I can look after my garden, manage an easy supper, do some light housework, and do something creative.
