Liz Steel and we covered teacups and architectural drawing. Well to tell the truth I am still struggling to draw an ellipse and getting those teacups to sit on the saucer with some form of perspective and proportion. My first pic shows the cup and some details that Liz suggests you sketch out quickly so that you understand the cup before you draw. She manages to drink her tea hot while she is sketching and painting! Mine went cold and I went back to using a mug. The next pic has a wide border because I cannot even draw a straight line but in the end it really didn't matter.

The class this week at SBS is with Andrea Joseph and drawing with a pen or biro. Not something I would ever think of doing (apart from doodling on a scrap of paper) and it has been a great exercise. Her illustrations are wonderful and her tips have been really helpful. The top pic is a collection drawing and the one below is a quote using her hand lettering style.
All in all a very good class in SBS.

Hardly an exciting woyww desk but it does show my new moleskin watercolour notebook which arrived on Tuesday after I placed the order online Sunday. How good is that and I think I was in my pj's when I ordered and when it arrived. I have been using cheap notebooks that I buy from the $2 dollar store. Sometimes the quality of the paper is ok other times it is terrible. I have finally had enough of cheap paper and bought a moleskin.
This weeks SBS class was with Cathy Johnson and the focus has been on nature sketching and painting.
My version of the Eastern Yellow Robin. He was sitting beautifully in a tree and moved around for a couple of different poses ..... I know he looks like 3 different birds! I got good value out of his moving around.
Have a lovely woyww and I will slowly visit lots of desks over the week.

Do any woyww's sell craft online? How easy is this to do? Would you recommend any sites such as etsy or do you just sell through your blog/ ebay. I am just curious to see if anyone is actually selling the lovely stuff they make or giving it away.
Would love to hear what woyww's do with their craft and whether anyone has hit the big time. By the time I get a few answers my class would of moved on to week 3 and I can get back to painting fruit rather than selfies. Have a lovely woyww and promise to visit lots of desks over the week.

Flowers have been a theme this week and here is a pic of my Phalaenopsis orchid which lives in the kitchen. Far more co-operative then kitty who never sits still if I am sketching or painting.
Have a lovely woyww and I plan to visit over the weekend.
