365 Sketches #27

Hardly anyone wears a watch these days, most people just use their phones to check the time. I have 3 watches, but hardly wear them, since they can get in the way of making art. I tend to move my arms a lot when drawing and don't want to gouge any work by accident.

My tooth got a temporary filling in it, but it has to go, its just crumbled when it broke. Putting in the temporary filling was hard enough for the dentist to do, so pretty sure the only way its going to get yanked, is if they knock me out so they can move my jaw enough to get at it. That will be fun :p

Weekly Book Wrap Up

Oh no! Didn't finish any books this week, but I blame that on having vertigo. Kind of hard to read when things are spinning :p Hopefully get some books finished next week or my goal is going to start to be a little harder to meet.

Currently trying to read:

Lion in the Valley (Amelia Peabody #4)
Only 14 pages left to read, just couldn't manage to finish it in a week.

In Progress: See Inside a Lettering Artist's Sketchbook and Process, from Pencil to Vector
And all other books are going to be put aside so I can read this one. Really nice looking and informative book.

Lake Erie Pastel

New paper for me, velour paper. I like it, but had to figure out a way to fix the pastel to the paper without any of the fixative leaving spray marks. John to the rescue for thinking of the spray varnish I have. Worked well and didn't change the colours that much, as fixative can or leave any spray marks on the paper.

This is a scene at Lake Erie before it started to rain. Can get pretty windy down by the pier, but the view is really nice.

365 Skeches #26

Little Halloween tea light holder, not sure if I have sketched this before but it never hurts to draw something again.

So, broke another tooth tonight. Bit of a pain in the butt since I am not sure what can be done with it since it is a back molar and I still can't open my jaw properly from the TMJ surgery. Time will tell what happens I guess, probably pull it.

365 Sketches #23

This drawing is actually bigger than the actual little glass ornament lol

Whanaura Bay

A pastel landscape of Whanaura Bay in New Zealand. Very green area with very blue water.

Done on fisher 400 paper, which I love, but have some new paper to try now. So expect some more pastel works from me. Can use coloured pencils on the new paper too, so going to try that out one day.
