No post for so long

I have been posting on facebook and on my other blog but somehow I just havent been sketching. Too tired, at the moment cant see due to a cataract op and one eye not talking to the other. I do get new glasses next Friday and I hope they do the trick. Very hard at the moment to see the computer screen. Any way this was last nights doodle with a wash of colour over it. I hope I manage to get things on this blog a bit more often.

I havent painted for ages but the other day I started this one, a sort of companion to 'The watchers', I am finding that my sight is getting worse, a cataract op is, I hope, in the near future. Any way it was something to keep this blog alive.

Last pages of my weekly journal Colour me positive

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.

A sketch from Kangaroo Island

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.

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.
