This week’s Sketch Tuesday assignment: draw something that starts with the letter “O”.
Rafe has drawn a variety of whimsical animals:
I think the ostrich is my favourite.
I went with an oystercatcher:
This week’s Sketch Tuesday assignment was to sketch a vegetable. Oops, I sketched a selection:
Rafe got all arty-farty and sketched his on some black paper. It looks pretty effective, I think:
I feel I should apologise for my lack of blogging updates this month. My creative mojo is taking an extended winter break but I can feel the stirrings of it returning so hopefully there will be sewing and whatnot to show you soon :-). I have learned not to panic about these things and understand the ebbs and flows of the creative life. Whilst I haven’t been sewing or creating much, I have been reading a lot, as well as having lots of lovely fun times with friends and family, and both things are important to me.
This week’s Sketch Tuesday assignment is to sketch something brown. Whatever the colour, Rafe can think of some foodstuff he likes in that shade :-). Here’s some brown Organic Brown Sauce. It’s very nice with scrambled eggs.
I chose to draw this little brown toy doggie. His legs aren’t quite as stout in real life!
This week’s Sketch Tuesday assignment was to sketch something for dessert.
It just so happens that I have a book out of the library at the moment – Free From Desserts by Julia Thomas – that is full of sumptuous dessert recipes. I chose to draw the one that I most fancied eating – this Espresso and Hazelnut Baked Cheesecake. Yum yum. Next step would be to actually make it I suppose 🙂
Rafe (10) is more of a chocolate lover, so he went with a big slab of chocolate cake:
This week’s Sketch Tuesday assignment was to draw something that hides. Rafe will use any excuse he can to draw something cute, hence this bunny:
Me – not so much! I drew a Pill Woodlouse which, according to my Collins Complete British Wildlife is “easily recognised by its ability to roll into a ball when disturbed”. This is exactly how I feel some days 😉
This week’s Sketch Tuesday assignment was to draw something that grows. Rafe quickly figured out that this meant any living creature and chose to draw two of the cutest:
I plumped on a drawing of my favourite vegetable, the much maligned beta vulgaris var. crassa – or beetroot as it is more usually known 🙂
It’s back to school for school kids and not back to school for home educated ones. What better way to bounce back into learning than with Sketch Tuesday? The first assignment of the new school year was to “sketch something that bounces“. Cue an education in 1970s TV programmes, and a drawing of Zebedee from the Magic Roundabout.
And here’s Rafe’s (if he is going to keep writing his real name on his drawings, it seems a bit pointless to carry on with the Waif pseudonym!!)
Don’t worry, we have also covered geography, with a game of City Country World 🙂 which, needless to say, Rafe won!
And this afternoon it’s down to the local swimming pool! Who needs school?
