Haven't sketched for ages

This hasn't Come out terribly well. We are up on the Gold Coast, in Queensland. It is a lot warmer at home but pleasant, came up for a funeral, a celebration of a 103 year old life lived well. But at the end a merciful release. Now we are staying with friend J and relaxing and catching up with friends. I sketched these flowers when we had a morning to our selves, we have packed in quite a bit and once more, with J working this morning are doing very little

2 weeks of colour me positive

I have been a bit slow posting these, but here are 2 weeks efforts. I am still enjoying doing them. This last week we could do what we liked, so I chose to do leaves. I love painting leaves and I rather liked the quote I found to go with it.

I rather liked doing this one, the last few I have done have been awful. Serene and peaceful. Not a lot of sketching has been going on here, I have been knitting. and ching so not much to put up.

Playing with tea bags

I usually use gesso under these but didnt this time. because I am placing them on black pages in my book I think the gesso makes them stand out better and if I dont use too much you can still see the lovely colours left in the tea bag.

Week 34 colour me positive

Trouble is this one doesnt look very positive. Whatever I did it didnt photograph well and yet in real life it is quite good. I used a spray as a background, then I rubbed over a rubbing tile with crayon and then drew the leaf in pencil. I think I shlould have gone over it again with a pen. Oh well. I will brighten things up next week.

Week 33 colour me positive

I think my caption for this was something along the lines that would it be possible to pick up a feather and fly. Having fun. It is on my face book page.

Colour me positive

I absolutely loved doing this, Ro Bruhn was our inspiration this week with Alive being the prompt. I love Ro's work and this is my tribute to her. Not nearly as polished, much more primitive but the best my rather shaky arthritic fingers could do. I have always loved doing houses and rolling hills and pastures but this one just seemed to jump off the paint brush at me. I hope she doesnt mind.
