Today we went to a fab Big Draw event at Prema Arts Centre run by Hannah Dyson, Eve Coy and Will Becher – and made twizzly things!
I forgot to post yesterday’s #inktober drawing, and today’s is just a scribble as I’m very tired! I don’t find it hard to draw every day but it can be tricky to remember/find time to post daily…
Today I passed a woman taking her dog for a walk IN A BUGGY. He (she?) was wearing a cone round his/her neck.
(In fact she was arranging a rain cover over him but I thought that wouldn’t make such a good picture).
Yesterday’s #inktober was a quick sketch on getting back from a lovely tea party.
Today is the 1st of October and that makes it #inktober (an inky drawing every day, there are lots of artists creating wonderful inky things on Twitter)…
Hurrah for a peaceful hour of drawing and snipping that I hope to continue with later…
This weekend I have been creating a prototype horse hat for my daughter’s school pantomime. The ears actually stick upright and not out (I forgot that when I was doodling).
At the moment it looks like it could be pretty much any animal…despite the addition of a dodgy-looking mane. BUT something fancy and a bit circus-horse-ish will happen on the top. I hope. Then I’ll need to make four of them!
The highs and lows of Forest School with my daughter’s class…
When we were in France recently we got caught in a rain storm while we were looking around an amazing Roman amphitheatre.
We sheltered for a bit (and watched the film about it’s history several times) but eventually realised that we’d have to make a run for it.
While I cunningly fashioned rain ponchos for the children out of plastic bags from the gift shop, my husband ran off to get an umbrella from the car.
He came back with a Handy Tarpaulin that my Dad had given us (thanks, Dad!) and so we scuttled through the streets, holding the tarpaulin over the children (and bits of us). I got pretty soaked as if I held it over my head (I was at the back) I couldn’t see where we were going…but it was a holiday and Good Things were nearby and instead of feeling glum we just got GLORIOUSLY WET.
