Just Outlines...

Sundays are sort of becoming a work in progress
I keep having great plans of having finished work by the end of the week
but all that is happening at the moment 
is more and more projects at outline stage
and not much further than that
so either life has been a bit busy 
or I am just developing some bad creative habits
kind of think it is a bit of both at the moment
my lack of organisation when it comes to my work
was bound to catch up with me sooner or later

I am going to have a week of finishing off I think
try to clear a few pieces off my desk and
get my brain in order
and don't snort and give me the as ifs
it could happen
not likely, but it could

I have the drawings that I started last week of the spoons in the cup
and this one of all my favourite
travelling drawing sketching supplies
and I wanted to have a go at drawing up some oranges on a cake stand
no clue why I thought oranges should go on a cake stand
but hey its a look
and I saw a fluted cake stand which I am now madly coveting so it is in there too
and tea cups
always bloody tea cups
but I do love them and the apples that I had planned to place on the third got eaten
so tea cups it is, and while they have presented a bit of a scale issue
figuring it will work out in the end
and if it doesn't it will just go to live in the dead drawing draw

Lots of talented artists will be posting their Sunday Sketches 
if you would like to see more finished work
just click on this link or the one on the side bar

and Phantom Steve would like me to write a public thank you 
for all her birthday wishes
especially Jen and her Mum who even made her a birthday video
she had a great day and says that the blogger world is just the nicest world ever
I agree whole heartedly...xx

Hi Tracey - well, if you never get around to the painting side, these make for great sketches!

Great outline drawings! Something you said has made me think (!) - now I am wondering if I clear up my table, will my brain be in order? It's worth a try, I'll let you know! Hugs, Valerie

I love your drawings and I love the way you write, like we are right there with you, we all suffer from this unfinished stuck in the mud syndrome, it always seems to pass doesn't it, we get that perfect idea and off we go,

I LOVE all these sketches especially the way you did the apples and tea cups- it will all get done; you know it will! I'm usually amazed at how much you manage to crank out! The best I can ever do, is one painting a week ;)

Your sketches are awesome, and I think you can get them finished up, as a matter of fact, I know you can! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Rita said...

I didn't just get stuck--came up against a brick wall a couple weeks ago. I have to either go up and over it or around it to get moving again. ;)

You sketches are lovely. I get discombobulated when my surroundings get too messy or chaotic, too. I live in a small place so it is quite noticeable--LOL!

Sandra Busby said...

Well quite possibly I might share a birthday with phantom Steve? It's mine today! Happy birthdays all round then! For my birthday I'd like to start my Art Journal after weeks of procrastinating over the first page! And your own sketches are totally inspiring! I like them even at this stage. Many of mine never got further than that in my last sketchbook!

even if your art plans are not unfolding completely, your sketches look wonderful.
