Yesterday between looking after the boys and trying to motivate myself to start the beading on my Indian owl. (As well as trying to finish my knitting) I actually managed to have a quick play around with my watercolours.
He's definitely not my best work, for starters I always tend to work better on a larger scale but I've fallen in love with illustrations on book pages after stumbling upon some on pinterest. I also did it in five minutes using a postage stamp sized picture on my phone as an image to work from.
But I actually kind of like him, I think he's got a certain something. And I love his big old beady eyes!
This is probably just me being optimistic about him though, I can already hear the voices of art teachers past telling me to bin it and start on something fresh!
Which I might just do (not the binning part) the starting fresh part, it's been ages since I've had a go at painting. I'm thinking something of the large scale variety, possibly on canvas. And to be honest I am quite liking the idea of doing an owl! Just need to get myself a canvas now and to get my bum into gear.
Speaking of getting my bum into gear I have a list of things to do as long as my arm!
- finish current knitting project for etsy.
- finish patchwork quilt (lord give me the strength to actually complete this project!)
- aprons to be sewn
- needle books to be made
- beading on Indian owl to be started/completed
- all embroidery projects to be turned into cushions
The list goes on and on and on!
It seems every time something's finished something else rears its ugly head!
