So much grey weather, yesterday was awful, so a nice surprise today to see blue sky and some sunshine. Not that it lasted long. Last night Harvey saw off an invader, I let him go out, next thing there are two cats howling at each other - went to investigate and there is my boy, bravely defending his territory - from behind the garden gate! The last couple of nights he's wanted to go out, so I've let him, so far he's come back unscathed. Sadly my mood wasn't matching the nice weather, hit a downer, it was bound to happen. So a calm day, just mooching about and drawing - of course. First up yesterday was this pic, it is the princess from Frozen. Her braids drove me nuts, took me ages to figure out how to draw them. Then I moved on to Manga, again... determined to get it right.
So that was yesterday. Today's stuff coming up! It was hard to get going this morning, I cancelled a visit from a friend. Wasn't in the mood for company, and was getting stressed for some odd reason. By the time I got out the sun had disappeared behind the grey clouds, and boy was it cold!
And then it was time for a cuppa, and give Harvey some food, which of course he walked away from! He walked back later, that seems to be his habit. So he demanded some play time, after that he wanted fussing over, while covering me with his fur.... cough, splutter... Think it must be the cold weather as he seems to want to sit on my knee in the afternoon. I'd had the heating on for a little while, just to take the chill off the place, well it was 2 degrees! I'm not a wimp and I'm happy to put on layers, but there is a limit, and today was it. The flat is so well insulated that the heating only needs to be on for half an hour and the place is like toast. When mum was alive the heating was on pretty much all the time during the winter, I woud be wearing a T shirt it was so warm.
Got a cheeky letter from the council to say I'd missed my council tax payment, well I had but only by a few days. The letter said I'd missed other due dates, true, but only by a few days. You'd think I owed them thousands when in fact the debt was: £28, yep, twenty eight quid! Felt like withholding it until the street sweeper actually sweeps our road, never seen him use his brush.
So that's my lot for today, will finish the portrait tomorrow, have a feeling it will take me all afternoon. And then need to sort out my big challenge: to draw a portrait of my mum on her wedding day. She was so beautiful, I just hope I can do her justice.
Thanks for stopping by.
So those are my drawings so far this week, I should think tomorrow will be taken up
