Here is an early Happy Halloween drawing for you - Arachne's Hand is what I'm calling it (but, of course, Arachne in symbol only as this is my hand tarted up with doodles:). I decided to doodle/tangle with 'thread' type patterns - things that could be stitches, lace, etc. Of course, the spider/web on my palm is in honor of Arachne. :)
Here are some drawings I made while I was in Tennessee on vacation:
This is a view from the chair on the balcony that I liked - the trees on each side. The shadows and lines of the railing really fascinated me but I can only call this practice of shading - not very good at 3D (yet, if ever:).
This is meant to be a sketch of the stone faced hearth (gas fired, I think - too warm to use it while we were there:) in our living room. Again, could use better shading, but pretty good, on the whole, for a drawing-inpaired person like me. (grin)
This is an idle drawing of an ideal 'Dream' house for me - includes a telescope equipped observatory (do you remember that my husband is an astonomer?:) and some very odd vehicles in the front road. :) Silly me. :)
I'm kinda proud of myself for something else I've managed (no photo of this, yet) -- my neighbor shop owner, Jolene (Cloverhill Yarn Shop) is giving out steps/clues for a mystery sock knit along right now (check her blog), and I've just finished the first step.
I'm proud 'cause I have NEVER managed to make i-cord before (obviously, I'm an idiot because even an idiot is supposed to be able to make this stuff:) and I did it with her instructions. God alone knows why it worked for me when my past tries have failed (five? six? times). She used an icord cast on for the top of the sock - very, very cool! :)
I've been home all day with intestinal difficulties (sigh). I feel better but I sure hope they are gone by tomorrow - I have things to do! :P
PS You may have noticed that the drawings above are on plain (lined) paper? I filled up my nicely painted sketchbook pages and am working my way through another one (which was originally designed for people who write their dairies:)
