Fishing and sketching…

Nick and I went fishing to somewhere we’d never been before on Tuesday and it was so quiet that I ended up watching the tadpoles and the butterflies! I took a few pics with my phone and sketched them last night. I love tadpoles – they’re so cute, with their wiggling tails and their tiny legs attached to their chunky bodies. It’s amazing how many shades of browns and greens there are in their skin too…

And then, this morning I got another opportunity to sketch whilst DD was sitting an exam. I was sitting in the waiting area with some pencils, thinking of the lyrics to “Unorthodox” by Example. I wanted to draw something using the word – UNORTHODOX – and this is what happened…

I used a mixture of waterbased markers, a few Inktense pencils and black and white pens, plus a 9B graphite stick for the grungey shading. This is the video from Youtube which, now I’ve watched it, is better than I’d imagined!! Love this! And what a star little Akai is! For Penny Lane – Songs in my HeART blog.
