Day 185

When I woke up it was dark and I thought I had plenty of sleep time left. I did not. It was 7 am and time to start the day. I stared vaguely until hubby had disappeared off to work and then it was time to work out.

I remember not wanting to workout and pouting my way through the 30 minutes of doing it. I’m always proud of myself for working out when I don’t want to. I thought this would be the hardest change to make and it’s been one of the easier things (although you wouldn’t know it from all my complaining.)

Then I sat down to work on the Doodlewash – October 2019 prompt; 3. Fish. I found a pretty reference picture and did my best. I don’t think I’m being patient enough in between using the water and applying a new colour. I’m also not sure if I use enough or too much water. Confusing. I like how the fish turned out though.

I also did the Inktober 2019 prompt; 5. Build. I didn’t use a reference picture. I’m still a little shy with ink and didn’t add as much detail or shading as I feel it needed. I’m sure I’ll get more confident.

I finished the day with French. The timed practice runs went smoothly and I’m wondering if I should start on a new set of words on Tuesday or if I should practice what I already know for another week.

Tomorrow is the first day of the weekend for hubby and we will relax. Hopefully we’ll get some seeds planted this weekend. I don’t want to miss out on all the lovely spring weather.

Bonne Journée . Que tous tes voeux se réalisent. (Have a good day. May all your wishes come true.)

    1. Thanks so much. ^^ I was really happy with how the fish turned out. I feel like I might be getting used to working with the watercolour pencils.

      Fish are so wonderful. They’re so relaxing to watch. I used to love falling asleep to the movie ‘Finding Nemo’. xD

      I hope you’re having a fantastic, creative and blessed week.


    1. Thanks so much, Tiffany. ^^ I was very pleased with the fish. The colours worked lovely together and I’m starting to get a feel for the watercolour pencils.

      I hope you’re having a wonderfully creative week. =)


  1. Jolie poisson! And don’t worry about 2 much or 2 little water or drying times- it’s watercolor you can’t go wrong 🙂. And I think the ink drawing would make a good cover for some indie rock band album- like the Vivian Girls or something.

    1. Thanks. ^^ Yeah, watercolour seems to be pretty forgiving but I have had a few times with too much water. I’m a little impatient. Another skill to learn. LOL.

      That’s cool you think the ink would make a good cover for a band. xD Thanks!!! Never heard of the Vivian Girls but had a look today. They’ve got a great sound.

      Hope you have a great week coming up. =)
