Not a lot going on

This is on its side, I am sorry, not sure what is going on as I have it right side up and then it flips again. Any way this is a page I did for my colour me positive challenge and the prompt was enough. I had the shell I had picked up off the beach a few days ago so sketched it. I think what I said was that being alive was enough. That is the way I feel at the moment. Freezing cold, wet and windy today and no walk. Ah well there is always tomorrow.

Not really a sketch or painting

I suppose it is a sort of collage. Week 24 of Colour me positive, It was courage and we had to put the quote and a boat some where in it. I found an old National Geographic map of the ocean floor and used that as my base with a ship cut out of newspaper with the feeling that it needed courage to sail in a sea when you didnt know what was beneath you. I have been terribly tired lately and am struggling to get things done. Cold and damp and dull is probably the problem.

Week 21 and 22 of Color me positive

Bother bother, I dont know how that first one turned upside down, it was ok in my file. Sorry you will just have to wear it as I dont have time to fiddle with it. I was late doing these but had a bit of fun with them, especially the 2nd one as I didnt really have to worry about making mistakes.

tea bag birds

Since we, or rather the computer changed itself to windows 10 I have been having problems with the orientation of some photos.On the screen the Pacific gull is the right way up, when I load it it is not. Very annoying. Any way the black capped terns and a pacific gull.

Tea bag play

Bother I think the first one is not the right way up. Looks a bit Japanese, the second is a wavy cockle I had found on the beach. None showing up all that well. OH well.

tea bag sketches

I have been having problems loading photos but doing these tea bag sketches has still been fun, even if the grey succulent hasnt come out well and the pelican is on his side. The weather on the Island has bee good but the fishermen are not catching a lot of fish, but at least a feed for us all.
