I had a little sleep in and it was lovely. Once out of bed I got straight to today’s Doodlewash – August 2019 drawing prompts; 4. Sailing + 19. Waves. (I’m doubling up on prompts so I can still finish at the end of the month.)
The concept of this drawing was easy, a boat on waves. The reality of drawing it was much harder than I expected. I took inspiration from many photos and drawings of this subject. Once I got started it all came together quickly and I feel like this drawing is something I’d like to try painting one day.
My afternoon started with a handful of housework. Normally, in the week before wifey arrives it’s a whirlwind of catch up cleaning and generally trying not to look like we were raised by wolves in the wild. Today we looked around the house and were pleasantly surprised at how little we had to do. It’s almost like we’re adults!!
Once back at the computer I spent a couple of hours going through art blogs. I am obsessed with watercolour art at the moment. It looks so peaceful and calming, with mostly muted and soft colours. I can’t wait to get my hands on some. There are so many amazing and creative people out there. It was very inspiring.
I finished the day with 200 xp points during my French practice. Tomorrow I will start on a new bank of ‘people’ words. I’m kinda terrible at learning. I KNOW that I don’t know the stuff, that’s why I’m learning it but I still get annoyed and frustrated when I don’t know the stuff. I’ll try and leave my frustration under the bed tomorrow and have at it with a good attitude.
I’ve been blogging for a while now but haven’t really dived into a lot of the finer details about my life. I feel like I’m wanting to share some of my past and how I’m working on feeling better about it. It seems it has been unfolding in my mind for a few weeks now. I’m gaining some clarity on my behaviours. This week I’m going to try writing down how I’m feeling. Also, I’ll try and finish my ‘About Me’ page. It has been ignored for a little too long. Oops.
I hope you’ve had an inspiring day.
