Do you remember a couple of months ago I said I had been busier than a blue arsed fly?
Well that was nothing.
The last two weeks been crazy busy, hugely fun, completely out of control
and totally glorious
my brain has been a bit all over the place and jumping from project to project
which led to me drawing this into my sketchbook upside down
but I kind of like it just like that actually
as glorious as it has been it hasn't exactly been blogging friendly
and I haven't had much time for painting just for the fun of it
but the work has been fun so that is ok... sort of
I really miss my friends and blogging when things get a bit mad...
However I did start this little number as a warm up this morning
well it started as a little number
and then it sort of grew until it is kind of large
but I will need warm ups for the next few days so it will pull double or even triple duty...
I love using warm up sketches to start my day
as I get to draw out any creative stiffness and loosen up and get into the groove
these sort of projects that are a mix of loose paint, and line
with careful, observed tone are just perfect
because it hits all the skills I am going to be using later in the day
plus they often turn out as some of my favourite sketches
amazing what happens when you have no expectations isn't it
now I just have to hope I don't muck this up over the coming days...
happy painting all...xx
