Done!

Two days of hard work to tie up all the loose ends of this semesters college work. I only hope it all makes sense. I tried fitting imges on a word document, they came out tiny on the PDF. I tried using PowerPoint, it played up, and the images are huge! Ah well, computers are not my speciality.

At least now I can think about life outside of college for a couple of weeks till the start of the next semester. I can try and catch up with life.

Spent all day fighting PowerPoint!

Today was hard. One of our college presentations has to have our illustrations in a PowerPoint. But my computer was playing up and instead of being able to use the tabs at the top of the page they were greyed out. So I started a new presentation, copied and pasted the work over… Then I had a break for lunch, and the new powerpoint would not work, but the old one would! So I shifted all the new work over and continued. I just finished it. I don’t think it’s well presented. PowerPoint gives you design options so each page looks good, but together it’s a bit of a mush mash.

I have got to finish off another piece of work and hand both in this week so I might be missing for a few days.

A pile of….

A pile of…. Today’s #bandofsketchers prompt. My rings on my little finger. I didn’t really wear any rings except my wedding ring and my mums that I inherited from her. But gradually my hubby has bought me more. I don’t want or need any more, this is enough of a pile of metal!

Coloured pencil, metallic pencil and felt pens.

Old digital doodle

Faces, I love them, portraits, doodles, there’s something that makes me draw them. Trying to get features right. I’ve always drawn eyes as well. I try to get them right, but I have a default eye or face, the way as I sketch I try and it from memory. Things like the size of the eyes. The eyelids, the shape of lips. The size and shape of eyebrows. Hairline. I find hair the most difficult. I need more practice, even after sixty years!

A few sketches

Learning to resize images to save file space. These are three sketches I’ve done over the last couple of days. The chimney at the Beehive pub, a dinner plate and an ornament.

I like drawing in black and white and using cross hatching to shade the images. I’m drawing every day and I don’t want to stop.
