I woke just after 7 am and I really wanted to go back to sleep. I tried but my brain had already started ticking and I was keen on starting some art. I’m a few days behind in the Doodlewash event and one day behind in the Inktober event.
For the Doodlewash – October 2019 prompt; 4. Ice, I decided to do ice cream because yum! I found a colourful reference and tried. I particularly like the wafer and the strawberry ice cream. Another thing I will try drawing again.
For the Inktober 2019 prompt; 6. Husky, I decided to draw a Hillman Husky. My original idea was to draw a husky dog but wifey helped me find a non dog reference. I had no idea how to tackle a dog in ink.
I spent the afternoon looking for some reference pictures for my next few challenge prompts and I worked on the next Inktober sketch but it’s not finished yet.
The new week starts tomorrow and that means a new Happy List. Although I have ignored writing for many weeks now, I still keep it on the list. I have things I want to write but no discipline in this area.
New to the list this week is playing my piano. I started learning to play piano when I was four. It’s always been something I loved but over the last 10 years (and not having my piano), I just lost the urge. Today hubby and wifey finally pulled my electric piano out of storage. Fingers crossed it still works.
