soup vegetables


Yesterday we walked on a beach close to us, no one around as school has gone back, low tides so the rocks in this surfing area were showing, not sure I would like to surf here. I havent been to this particular beach for soo long, and mostly it was when I was a teenager, all boobs and pubes and showing off the latest in skimpy bikinis. Well that was a long time ago, the thought of me in a bikini now is not a good one.
I felt I had better get on with my sketching, drawing doing something every day so drew the vegetables I was going to make soup with, I was quite pleased with them and then made a muck of it by drawing in the tiles on the back of the bench. I know not to do that next time. Again done with a waterproof pen and my derwent pencils with water added.
Spent most of the day moving pots around and tidying up a bit of neglected garden. Lots of wheelbarrow work and tugging and pulling. Stable manure on top hides a lot of mess and made it look tidy again.

Hi Penny

Got your blog link from playways group. I like the tiles in your sketch - add some colour and remind me of Matisse and his textile backgrounds! Well done with the drawing a day - you are putting me to shame.

Penny...not to know when to stop is my biggest problem too....
I do a lot of scanning of my work these days.At least I have a chance to see what it looked like if it ends up messed up.lol

Anyway,...I like your soup vegetables and the tiles....your kitchen must be nice and sunny.

marie J'...who should be working in the garden but it's cold and grey outside.
That's Melbourne

Hey, Penny! I scan a lot of my drawings halfway through, too, just in case I "mess up" the background. But, I really like your soup veggies AND tiles!
