Socks and sandals

What to draw on a cold wet day? Socks and sandals of course, to keep his feet cool….

Sporting Black socks with white toes and brown sandals, black trousers.

Part of the one inch drawing challenge I’m doing with Urban Sketchers Stoke-on-Trent. Sometimes it’s hard to feel inspired.

Says it all really, I went to bed, then got up five times, tried to sleep, now it’s catching up with me.

So many things were going on in my mind but I couldn’t shake them off.

Day 12 of the 1″ drawing challenge so I’m a good third of the way through it. Only 19 days to go.

Figurehead

I was startled to meet this figurehead at R&B T cafe on the toll road around the Great Orme today. He’s a ships figure head and the cafe owner said he is victorian. Most figureheads are female so he is unusual. He doesn’t have a name so I suggested Posiedon.

I did a drawing of him and the owner liked it so much he asked me for it. He’s going to get it framed. So all I have is a photo of the figurehead and my drawing, and of course a nice memory.

To find the cafe you take the Toll Road from the ski centre side of the Great Orme mountain. The marine drive takes you around the base of the mountain. There are sea views across to Anglesey, and Conwy and Conwy Castle. Today though it was very misty. There was not much of a view just a haze as we looked out from the cafe’s viewing platform. (Which is up some steps at the back of the cafe.) 

Loose Tea

Just found this sketch in my bag. I was trying to explain to my hubby that we had a metal net type thing, two hemispheres of mesh that close up and clip together to hold the tea in. It’s like an old fashioned tea bag. Maybe this is something people could start using again. It would save on paper and you could put just the right amount of tea in just for you……..

The only trouble is I can’t find the darned thing!
