Creative EveryDay and Animal Wednesday (the fishes are animals - aren't they?)
After I got over feeling like this everyday (see piles above) I started to draw and sketch and generally enjoy myself. Interspersed with bike rides, I've read some "how to " books and magazines. I wanted to learn to draw legs - here is a study that I copied from one of the "how to" book. Cute guy eh?
Of course the study of legs is simply in preparation for my fish with legs - and I like this little set shown below. I have a colored version, but the scanner is is poor...that'll have to wait. Mr Big fish is teaching little fish how to walk properly and the little snub nosed fish feels a bit out of it! (but HAW anyway)
I also found this wonderful paper at the local art store - it's sort of silk screened with a black surface that is very toothy - almost like it has a bit of grit in it. So I worked on my bubbles...or yeast...or whatever. Mom likes it and wants to frame it, so I'm going to take it to the framing store and give it to her as a present. I don't want her to do it herself, as the pastels might get smudged.
So in it's own way, a productive and fairly relaxing week so far. DH still coughing, have him on antibiotics and hope that'll help.
Happy New year to you all!
