I listened to a healing meditation as I drifted off last night. It was very relaxing. I got about 6 hours sleep which isn’t terrible. I really felt like starting art the second I woke up but instead I enjoyed a coffee and watched some short food videos on Youtube with hubby.
Once hubby had gone to work I started work on a meal plan for the rest of the week. I found some great keto recipes (at least they sound great) and I’ve planned to have one that we ate last week. It was just so delicious.
Before I started Puddling I decided to do some random art with prompts from ‘Jazza’s Arty Games.’ I found the environment challenges the most fun. I struggled with the ‘character’ challenges and most attempts found their way to the bin. I only set 10 minute timers for each drawing but they all took longer.
I started with the floating city. I didn’t write the prompt down and just had to guess at what it said when I’d finished drawing. I drew it in pencil and ended up lining it in ink to make it look a little bit more dynamic.
With the second one I wrote the entire prompt down and then drew it. I drew an ink outline, used fine liners to colour some of it and pencil to finish it off.
Then I decided to try a ‘copying’ challenge. I once again only set it for 10 minutes and this was no where near enough time. I got it roughly sketched then I ran out of time and the original picture disappeared. I wasn’t sure how to finish the bottom part of the body, so I didn’t worry about it and got to colouring. I used pencil.
I stopped the art-ing for lunch but quickly returned to it in the early afternoon. I got two Puddles completed today. I’m feeling the art!!!!
In today’s Adventures of Arthur Puddles we find him celebrating Read a Road Map Day. Because of the lockdown Arthur can’t go anywhere but he had a great time imagining he was out in his penguin-yellow car.
In today’s Adventures of Arthur Puddles we find him and Douglas dog having a pillow fight for International Pillow Fight Day. They had fun for hours and Douglas won more matches than you would think.
By the late afternoon I really wanted a nap but normal day things just kept happening. I feel so normal. I’m like a real human person today. I got a quick French and Norwegian lesson in and contemplated knitting. I’m close.
I hope you’ve had a fantastic day of smiles, brightness, creativity and relaxing. Keep your chin up and stay strong. This too shall pass. Stay safe and stay at home. Take care.
