All on their side I am afraid, I cant seem to turn them, or they go back when I do. I wasnt sure I would finish this weekly journalling idea and I very nearly didnt but in the last few days i hastily did something, cant say I am terribly pleased with them and I really dont thing that journaling is my forte. I have done very little sketching and painting lately and perhaps I will do better this new year.

I have been very naughty, so little painting and sketching but while we were on the Island for a week over Christmas I did do this one at the Chapman River where John was fishing, and catching bream that were too small. I love the grasses and fallen trees and stuff there. I am wondering if age is catching up, but I hope to do more sketching in 2017. See you then.

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

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 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.

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.
