Day 164

I had a fairly decent sleep and was ready to dive back into the art world… with colour.

After a slightly chocolatey coffee I started on the Doodlewash – September 2019 prompt; 10. Fruit. I found a neat drawing of a watermelon on Pinterest and made my version. I think mine is a little more rough around the edges but I had so much fun watching it develop. I used dark green, light green, red and black pencils.

While I was drawing I watched a ‘world movie’ called Mary and Max. I think it only qualifies as a world movie because it was on the world movie channel. It was based on a true story of an 8 year old girl in Australia becoming pen pals with a 44 year old man from New York. It follows their life long journey dealing with life as outcasts. It was moving.

After lunch I worked on another Doodlewash – September 2019 prompt; 11. Leaves. I am slightly obsessed with all things tropical, so I tackled a Monstera leaf. I used dark green, light green and dark blue pencils.

I took a break from drawing because the next Doodlewash prompt seems too hard. Can someone do it for me?

Instead I picked up my guitar and continued my practice of the song ‘Dearly Departed.’ I’m getting much closer to having it right. (As right as I can without being able to play some of the chords.)

After guitar practice, I did about 30 minutes of French. It was a fantastique practice. I worked through the ‘family 2’ topic and it was easy. Then I thought I might try some timed practice runs and had three perfect attempts. I even got questions about student/studying right.

That’s about it for the day. I feel weirdly disappointed and I’m not sure why.

I hope you’ve had a day filled with bright colours, beautiful songs and big smiles.

Happy weekend.


Day 112

I woke up just before 6.30 am again and started the day. First it was French. I got through about 30 minutes of practice runs and started learning some ‘Flirting’ words. I’ve always been a bit of a flirt and thought it could be fun. I think it’ll take me longer than a week to pick up.

Today’s drawing topic; Fruit. This was next on the agenda. I browsed a number of fruity reference pictures and settled on this delicious array of goodies.

Once hubby had left for work, I got to working out. It was hard and fast but not as fast as yesterday. I’m enjoying pushing myself harder again. I’m glad the body fatigue hasn’t been as bad the last few days.

After that I got my social on in a big way. The friend I’ve been hanging out with this week had another day off work and this would be the last, so we had to make it count. That meant some pretty deep conversation. At the time it felt nice to be able to talk about my life openly but now I feel like I’ve overshared and anxiety is eating me alive.

That was my day. I really need to do something creative tomorrow. I need to be distracted. I wish it was already time for bed. UGH!

I hope your day was filled with lovely conversation and good feels.
