Day 178

I woke just after 7 am and I sat and stared. That continued until about 11 am. I knew I had to get anything done, so I started work on the Doodlewash – September 2019 prompt; 23. Bowl.

My first attempt at a set of bowls, with watercolour pencils, went terrible. The sketch was okay but I didn’t like the direction the colour went. At that point, I just wanted to give up but I’m already behind in this challenge, so giving up just wasn’t an option.

I then found a very simple reference photo of black and white bowls and created my version of it in black ink, with lead pencil shading.

All challenge drawings can be found here…

I’ve been feeling a bit disappointed with my art the last couple of days and it’s starting to show in my overall mood. I was voice chatting with a friend in Discord and he said that I didn’t sound like myself. He was worried. I’ve been trying really hard to stay happy and positive this week, I guess it’s not working as well as I thought. I need sleep.

While waiting for dinner I started attempt number 4 on the fingerless gloves for hubby. Football season is now officially over, so I guess I really have 6 months until he’ll need them. Hopefully I can get them done long before then.

We had Veggie Burgers for dinner. YUM!

Tomorrow is going to be a fun day. I’ll start the morning with friends in WoW. Then the afternoon will be filled with arts and crafts with the family (this is the first time we are art-ing together.) The day will be finished with a movie marathon. I can’t wait.

I hope your day has been filled with yumminess, kindness and happiness. You look great in that outfit!

Happy weekend.

  1. Miss Tilly- a lot of people get frustrated with watercolor (and painting media in general) as it tends to do what it wAnts and doesn’t stay in the lines- so to speak. Perhaps rather than trying to render from a photo exactly what u see- do a base wash of watercolor and kind of improvise the drawing. The ink sketch looks great by the way – as does the veggie burger! 😋

    1. Yes, I get a little over ambitious when I am learning. I am trying to simplify my practices now and get used to working with the watercolours.

      The burger was fantastic!! Definitely something we’ll have again. xD Hope it’s a great week for you.
