What do you see? I see a beagle type dog with small brown eyes and long brown ears. Broad white shoulders. I also see a large brown hat, with very long furry fringes, above the brim of the hat the eyes of a macaque monkey, partly closed, stare out…
Observational drawing of the day, my eye, used a calligraphy pen and felt pens. The patterned thing is my little hand mirror.
I never thought I would be doing this challenge. I used to be scared of walking. If I walked a couple of hundred yards I would congratulate myself! I’m so glad I joined in and I’ve already got through 25% of it!
I used to be fit. I could cycle for miles, but after an accident where I was injured I eventually got a car. That was my downfall. Its taken over thirty years to realise I can do something about it. Don’t be scared, have a go!
A few photos I’ve played around with in Layout app and Instagram. Either just mirrored or mirrored and rotated. Our topic at college this week is Pareidolia, which anyone who follows me knows I already do a lot of! Fun!
I was trying to think what this pattern reminded me of? I think it is similar to a parrot. The curve at the top right could be a bill. The oval feature on the left could be where the eye goes? Pareidolia, the phenomenon of seeing faces and animals where they are not actually represented. I might try and play with it….
This was originally created in my old phone photo app….
I am singing in a zoom meeting choir so I decided to try and draw myself singing.
Black calligraphy pen in my cartridge paper sketchbook. Concentrating on learning the words, singing, and drawing is hard!
Playing with spray inks and metallic watercolours, the fine lines are done with one of my hairs pulled through the wet patches…
I might draw on top of this and create something….
I have a friend who creates ‘shibui’ images using this technique.
There is a prompt set by Esther Chilton to write a limerick using a particular word. This week it was Mop, which was good because I’d just drawn Mow Cop at Five am this morning.
Mow Cop is a folly of a castle near Kidsgrove, Staffordshire, and stands above the Cheshire plain with views of Jodrell Bank Observatory and beyond.

Every year since 2009 our little village of Penkhull in the City of Stoke-on-Trent has held a pantomime in the village hall. This year we couldn’t do it, but we’ve tried to keep the fun going by taking part in an online version….. See what you think!
based on my first ‘set’ drawing, this has changed into more of a landscape. Playing with sci-fi characters. I think I’m going slightly mad. I’m reading the brief and I’m supposed to draw again based on this…. I’m not sure what I will do next.
