The weather has been so miserable here over the past few weeks, I've really had no choice but to do a lot of drawing........nothing more productive that I really should be doing.......like......ah, housework. I promise :)
So, my routine has been to get the must-do jobs - like milking the cow, feeding chickens, bringing in some wood etc, done first thing in the morning, then I load up the wood in the fire and settle down to draw (maybe I surf the net a little bit, too). It's been great!
Today I decided to revisit the Olb/Abundies combo that I first played with a couple of weeks ago. I had so much fun with it that I wanted to have another go - I went with some black striping on this one. So fun!
I've even got a little bonus "quick draw" video (I know! it's not even Friday :) showing how I approach drawing an Olb/Abundies combo with some basic grey lead shading. This has been filmed at (mostly) 8 x speed. Actual drawing time took approx. 15 minutes. The drawing above took more time with layered shading and filling in the black areas.
Enjoy the quick draw? I've also got a video of an Aquafleur Poppy being drawn, though I've used a series of photos instead of video footage.
Other stuff: work on the new book is progressing slowly, slowly, but in an ever forwards motion, gearing up for a chicken workshop we're doing here in a couple of weeks........ and here's a 3.5 tile that I did for the Zentangle One Focus on Finery.
