What's in My Sketchbook?

Constant grey and rainy days ...

An old sport injury came back which turned itself into back and shoulder pain ...

All these are dulling my mind ... so excuse me if I'm don't want to talk too much.

Here is the sketch page for this week.

HOpe you feel better. It's cold and grey here too and it's supposed to be summer. Tomorrow I'm going to see Take That perform at Wembley Stadium (as in outdoors).... Forecast is for more rain :(

Your creations as always are wonderful. I have a great photo (somewhere) of some knarled wood full of holes. I'm going to see if I can find it and email it to you. I think it might be right up your street!

Lovely work...and what an intriguing antler formation. You take such great photos :)

Terrie said...

Your creativity obviously extends beyond your sketching ability - your display/photos of your work are always so intriguing and well planned. I love you frame your sketches to give them more prominence. It makes your pages feel more complete and intentional. Always inspiring!

SaraLynn said...

You have such beautiful sketchbook pages! This is stunning and I love the mushrooms from your previous post!

In answer to your question, the purple ink I used is just from a Sharpie pen. The ink will smudge a bit until it dries, but they come in a lot of cool colors!

Kiki aka Victoria said...

Shine on
