woyww - new years eve

Happily getting my sketch kit ready for tomorrow when I realised I still had time to do a final woyww post for 2014.  Nothing terribly exciting.  On the left is my sketchbook which I am using for the sketchbook foundation class, open at my handbag sketch/watercolour.  The kit holds everything I need to take out for the day, paints in a tiny pallet, w/c pencils, brushes, micron pen, scissors and tissues. Only thing missing is a little bottle of water.  
Close up of the handbag sketch and as you can see  by the date I haven't painted anything since.  Hopefully 2015 will be a little more productive.  

Happy New Year to all woyww's celebrating tonight, thank you for visiting throughout 2014.

woyww - cala lilies

Cards from last week are all finished so i have happily started back with my online sketching class. This weeks topic was drawing volumes. So I chose purple/black cala lilies for their lovely cone shapes.




A close up sketch of the lilies.  
You can see I am a messy worker with all the little splatters in my workbook.




Have a lovely woyww.

woyww - Joy cards and sequins

My desk is showing a healthy stack of Xmas cards and I have to admit nothing fancy this year as I have gone for quick and simple.  A bit of gold embossing, watercolour and a touch of sequins and I am now almost finished.  I did actually start the job on Sunday and nothing has moved right up to taking this photo.  Hopefully I will finish the last few sequins and write a greeting and get them in the post by the end of the week.  Now that will be a card making record for me:) Enjoy your woyww and I will slowly get around the globe and peek at your desk.
