I am continuing my series of heroes and heroine drawings, the latest is Nelson Mandela, shall have to take a fresh picture as I've tweaked his wonky teeth! I don't like drawing teeth, or glasses, hence I set out to do both in two pictures, well three as I've just started a 3rd, but I'm getting better at the glasses bit.
I want to try the exercise which shows you how to enlarge a picture. Found a lovely pic of my mum in her WAAF uniform, but it is small, so that could be my challenget this week.
Final pic is a melted candle, though it it could also be a tree stump I guess. This was an exercise in shading, which I think I've overdone, I really needed some H pencils, an oversight on my part which has now been rectified.
No sketching tomorrow, a friend is coming for lunch, it will be nice to have a catch up. I've just about located my stash, or the bits I need for a card I have to make, sadly need some shiny black card! So I may be a bit late doing this challenge... I'm just out of practice. Though I guess if I sorted out the stash properly... yes and pigs fly! I did do some sorting out this morning, worked my way through the pile of post - it has been opened but not yet filed, so that is the next job.
I also need some new net curtains, current lot have had it. I've seen some pretty nets in Dunelm, seems odd buying stuff for the flat, once mum and I would have had to agree, though we pretty much shared the same taste. But in her latter years she was loathe to replace things, we really needed new pans, I said I'd buy them but she kept on insisting that the ones we had were okay. Even getting her to spend money on herself was a battle.
Thats all for now, next posting will be towards the end of the week. Thanks for stopping by!
