I need to mess with this in Craft artist, and come up with a theme. In the meantime I'm happy to just be drawing. Usually after a successful piece of work I tend to dry up, which can be very frustrating. So these are test pieces, until I figure out what I want the picture to say.
I kind of want this to be either the boot of a homeless person, or a builder, or gardener... still wondering how I arrived at this obsession with footwear!
Was looking at some mount cutters, saw one at a very reasonable price, but I kind of felt it was 'too' reasonable. So back to the research, and yes, it was way too reasonable for any hope of a professional finish. The kit I do need is much more expensive, so need to save up. In the meantime I found some made to measure mounts, one allows you to upload your photos so you can see how it looks, all very useful. I may buy the mounts for a couple of pictures, then make use of the stuff in Hobbycraft to make a frame.
This is a hawk, can't remember its full and proper name. I do remember how I enjoyed drawing this beautiful bird. I love birds of prey, there is something so majestic about them.
I did pop into town yesterday and went to the cruise liner terminal, so I did see the Queen Victoria. The QM2 is coming back in July, so I may get a chance to see her then. I have seen the QE2 and Brittania sail down the river, plus watched Concorde fly down the river, that was a sight to behold! The Red Arrows made a brief appearance, our local paper said there would be a display, er, well there wasn't, they dropped by on their way to Blackpool. I was amazed to see how much coverage the event got, it made most of the national newspapers, even those that hate Liverpool put at least one picture in their paper.
And when will it begin to warm up? I've just ordered a summer jacket, will I ever get to wear it? I'm still using my fleece!
Let's all do a sun dance.
