Day 219

I went to bed early last night, woke up late and still felt exhausted. I really don’t know what’s up with me at the moment. I did French, then spent a little time with wifey, before climbing back into bed for a lunchtime nap.

I woke around 2 pm, it was hot, I was exhausted, my body ached and I was starting to feel pretty miserable about the whole situation. I tried to find some inspiration for a watercolour sketch but nothing seemed appealing.

Instead I got out my sketching pencils that I hadn’t used yet and did a little more work to my Romain Duris sketch. So I really don’t know anything about the different types of lead pencil, I just tried a number of them to see what they did.

I have a lot of trouble drawing mouths and thought that may be a great place to stop for the day. I’m determined to finish this sketch though. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.

I hope your day has been filled with energy, excitement and happiness.

I'm on a life changing journey to 40. There will be ups, there will be downs. I'm like a roller coaster but with more agoraphobia.

    1. Thanks for the well wishes. A little extra sleep and hopefully I’ll be feeling fine again. ^^
      I’m still stuck on drawing the lips on the sketch. I’ll just keep practising until I get it, however long it takes. xD

      I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Take care. =)


      1. A good sleep does wonders for the system.
        Lips are hard to sketch, practice makes perfect so they say but nothing needs to be perfect πŸ˜€
        My weekend is going ok, no art as yet. I hope you are enjoying your weekend 🌻🌝

      2. I might have to spend a day just drawing lips. No matter how much I think I’m doing it right, they always look wrong. More, more, more practice. xD

        No art in my weekend yet either. Tomorrow is still the weekend for us, so I’ll try and get a little something done. Have a great week!! =)


    1. Thanks so much, Irene. A few nights of extra sleep and I should be feeling fine. ^^ I’m pretty happy with how the sketch is going. Faces sure are hard to draw.

      I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Take care. =)
