I’m a bad person! I try and sell things at a reasonable price, but then I like being nice to people and I often haggle myself down on prices! It’s like I’m at a car boot not a craft fair. Help! But I can’t employ someone. Got to do it for myself…
I think everyone should have the opportunity to have art if they want it, and forget that people have to make a living out of it. I will not be winning business woman of the year…
While I was stall sitting I did a quick sketch of people around a stall across the way from me. There are some lovely things for sale. On the whole I’m enjoying myself.
Take an abstract doodle and reimagine it as a mug design.
I just sketched the black in quickly but I could see this printed on a mug. It’s brightly coloured, a real pop of pattern.
Somehow I’ve got to start getting my art work printed. I think that would be a way forward with my pictures. I’ve had a few enquiries from people recently.
I need to practice real drawing, I do a lot of digital stuff, and quick sketches but I only tend to do portraits of my hubby. I think I need to start drawing at a life drawing class again. I vaguely know where eyes and noses and mouths fit, it’s just when you are not looking at a person it doesn’t look real. I have a reasonable visual memory, I know, but that doesn’t make me accurate. I always think I could do better…..like this profile for instance, is the chin to big, the mouth too small, the brow too sloping? It’s all down to practice.
I’m not posting these very often, it’s not like the October one inch challenge, but I am trying to do a drawing each day. It’s a little visual diary. So things like going out to lunch and treating myself to a Gin and Tonic (very weak) is on there. Plus trying to find a stray cats owner and falling over and hurting myself yesterday (I drew that today). I will carry on and see whatever else happens.
Barometer indicated rain,
Yesterday, today, tomorrow..
Will it indicate flood soon?
Steam from streams?
Snow to blow across the earth.
When North wind blows.
Sleep now, there may be Sun,
I can’t get over the last months drawing challenge so I’ve started a drawing a day in a circle for November.
The first one was just a car outside our house. Not very exciting. What I think I will do is post the pictures every week or so rather than individual ones.
This made me laugh though, my hubby likes having cool feet. He probably won’t wear shoes till December. I think he’s odd but it’s his choice.
