Today marks Day 25 of my 100 days; a quarter of the way through – and I’m up to date. To be honest I did fall a little bit behind this week; but I caught up. Over the weekend I have got a lot of work to do – between my bee project, a project for a big fishing based company and my portraiture it a wee bit hectic. But you know what? I’m enjoying every second of it – and that’s by far the most important thing.
Ok so Day 21 I did a wee pastel drawing of my teddy, Spot – I was given him when I was 10 by my Gran after I had a pretty bad accident (I broke my jaw). I love him so much, he even looks well loved:
For Day 22 I went for a mixed media piece (I love mixed media – it’s so interesting) and I mixed it with a little bit of surrealism (I’ve been channelling Salvador Dali this week). I used one of my acrylic prints; and then built up from there with photos, watercolour paint a doily and fineliner pen. I have to say I’m completely happy with this piece – it features my (now 7) son, Kris when he was just 2 years old:
Day 23 is a little experimental – to be perfectly honest it is not my favourite self-portrait, in fact it’s not even close but I did a continuous line drawing which was really interesting – I would use the technique again but maybe a little more carefully:
Day 24 is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, a charcoal reduction of a few of my favourite paintbrushes – I love charcoal, I used willow charcoal and it’s just the right amount of messy:
And then Day 25; which brings us to today. I love wild flowers, I always have done – they are super pretty and grow just wherever they want to. Anyway I decided to do a wee bit of stitching, I did a very quick sketch and then just started stitching. So here it is:
And so there we have it, I’ll be back early next week with some more posts so come check back. What are you working on this weekend?
