Brushpen idling

Seems not enough time for real work in the madness,- a collection of out of hours just before bed  brush scribblins.

See how I'm keeping it real by not editing out all the little not so good bits ?

or just lazy, old, and cantankerous?

Coping ready or not.

Well a perfect storm it seems- wife's mother in hospital this time, flooding rain , childcarer on holiday.....
not good for getting work done......needed the rain though- not being able to get stuff done..well.

what is it about this time of year the last 4 years?

Aaaanyway .

more pen on book on knee on couch life drawing at the gold coast life drawing group.
Host's wife once again the model and very good.
Note furry rug on the ground.
Scarf one is stray image from last week.

Issues with hand eye coordination.
Issues with wasted mouse pushing arm holding charcoal above shoulder height for any length of time- and going "stop it hurts let me go I don't want to do this line"..
Issues with drawing nice lines at waist height.
Issues with knowing where the exact point of the charcoal was- until after you've put the mark down 3mm out (like on the face).

This weeks bad life drawing day....

Might have to revert to pencil for a bit until things improve.
Or actually pay attention and look at what I'm drawing- yes that could work.....

skull wasn't a skull but an exercise ball-
but I'd kinda mangled the face (it was hidden in a mess of hair) and mangled the body ( was in plain sight   :(  ).
So I drew a sorta skull instead.

More Life drawing.

Nothing worth seeing from the James Guppy group yet,
Last night at Tugun went fairly well- an improvement.
Model was again very good.

Over the Moon

Advance copies of Wombat Jumped over the Moon arrived!
The hardback version is nicer- the endpages image works better with the spacing page in the hardcover.
