Oh Dear I didnt blog for a wee while

Its all cool Im nearly done with another four day break though havent done as much uni work I expected to but Im enjoying the at home status.
I got two A1s done last weekend..
 And one in willow stick,layers upon layers sprayed  in between with  Workable Fixative which allows areas to be over layered with more medium and build up tone and color. I took over 9 hours to finish the first one to the point I was minutely satified but the second was done basicllay in an hour but spent time adjusting and looking at it.
Im off to art shop again in the near future to get the matching Derwent XL Graphite tin in the blue green colors

As I want to expand on the top one with a bit of color,after I submit it for assessment, these are exercises and not really works of any magnitudes but the luminosity of the pastel one is quite taking,a touch of blue I think will bring that out further. These tins are around $40 and being a little broke at moment Im waiting before I indulge in more
In the spinning sector im busy spinning some Shropshire,have half a bobbin so far but have given it a break due to headaches etc oh study too,Ive finished the blue Coopworth,I have three skeins but not sure if theres enough for sock,there is another skein here someplace i did before but with black alpaca and glitter through it,maybe ill use it for the soles
Knitting,Ill still working on a few projects,the vomit green yellow shawl,Ill be on the down hill run with it shortly,couldnt find the black beads so going with the the opaly blue ones,the optim cowl is sitting there waiting,and ive pulled the Citrin shawl out again,so slow now Im onto second ball of lace weight taken pics as its been dark and stormy,the col hasnt set i yet though Ive needed a jumper in the mornings. The wool jumpers I bought from Woolovers has been best investment,the heavier fishermen knit could have been a small but the lambs wool one is getting softer every day.
Ok I better scoot and do some mark making... and hatching eggs


  1. Fabulous drawing. I can never get my head around how to make the pencil draw what I see in my mind. I could teach the children in my class what to do, but not myself!!

  2. Do you think the second one was so much quicker because of the 9 hours you had spent on the first? I love pastel and charcoal. You have a good job capturing the form and shadows.
