Today was better, I started a sketch on Tuesday, of a cheetah (coming in a mo), that calmed me down. Then today I was having a tidy up and picked up one of my art magazines, opened at the page of a pencil drawing tutorial! So realising they were using the pencils I've got I set forth... so I began this Kingfisher sketch. I had most of the pencils, but need t get a few more so I can to it full justice. But I really enjoyed this sketching, the colouring was very therapeutic. I'm using the Faber & Castell, polychromos, lovely to use and blend so well.
I started with his nose, that way I had a point of reference for his eyes. I've noticed, or begun to notice that all wild animals, and domestic cats, have this black ring round their eyes, like eyeliner, and the big cats have very short ears. Their markings tend to be symmetrical, and I happen to like their noses!
It's nice working between drawings, keeps things fresh. So one more drawing to show... before I sign off.
Harvey has also been in a relaxed mood, I gave him some reiki last night, then again this morning, he's quite happy to lay there. He found the sunniest spot on the window ledge, and then moved to my bed for more sunbathing. He's had two bowls of food, a slice of garlic sausage and some cream, plus his treats. He gets three treats a day, after meals, he likes me to chop them into bits and throw them, he's very good at catching them.
That's all for now, think I need to rest now. Enjoy the weekend.
