I cant draw cows.


This is one of my last pages for my sketchbook project, I am afraid I have had to sketch and then cut out and then glue in as the paper is hopeless. I am also on the back few pages which I have had to tape or they will fall out and I have also glued some together for stability.
Now I dont know what to do about a cover as I have to leave a bit at the bottom free on the back and on the inside back cover a pocket will be glued. I am a bit inclined to collage it but am not sure how well this will stand up to handling.
A pretty strange looking cow but I just dont 'do' cows, perhaps I should work on that, my birds have got better perhaps my cows could too. Trouble is most photos of cows are taken from the rear end so you can see what their udder looks like! Not the best aspect to draw from.
It has been terribly hot and tropical but no rain, still grumbles so some one is getting it but not us.
I shopped yesterday and did far too much obviously as my knee went through its crawling with maggots inside stage again. Horrid.
Some one has to do some shopping or we wont eat and we wont get away for Christmas either. John tends to stand in the middle of the supermarket and have melt down and pathetically rings me every few minutes so it is not worth sending him in. Not sure what he will live on if I die!
Off to feed the chooks and dogs as John has been fishing and is terribly tired, it got rougher out there than they had hoped. He still has to get pasta for dinner so I need to do a few things.
If any one has any clever ideas about a cover please let me know.

She's a fine looking cow saying
Here's lookin' at you kid! I had to do a donkey for a picture on a glass wall and it looked like a sick looking horse!

It looks like a cow to me...I like the little heart spot you drew on her side!

Hope the weird feeling in your knee stays away!

I think the cow is great! She really looks like a real cow. Gerd would have no problem in the supermarket, but he wouldn't go fishing, so there you go!

Take care of your knee and don't do too much. I had to learn that to mys cost!


Love

Virginia

Not a lot wrong with that cow as far as I can see Penny.
It must be very odd having Christmas in a warm climate - can you send us a bit of sun here please?

Looks like a cow to me. Know what you mean about the cover, I have the same dilemma - to cover or not to cover.

Suztats said...
