A Basement Find
I jumped into one of the books, the simplest looking one, and practiced a variegated wash and some elementary shapes with washes. Not my finest hour. I'll do them again with less water and more control.
I also dug out the oil pastels and drew a little flower and bird just to play with them. I don't know what I'll do with them, if anything, because they smear if you don't fix them and I don't know how to do that. I suppose that there's something at Michaels for that.
It was a bird day! Both the male and female Cardinals came to the platform feeder one after the other. I also saw a Chickadee, a Nuthatch, and a Downy Woodpecker but didn't get pictures of those.
But I did draw them all on my gratitude journal page for today.
In the 3-D book I drew the last of the F figures. It's a furry foot that's getting ready to stomp on a little guy who's running away. Not bad.
Last night I unearthed some more sock yarn and cast on another sock so I have something to knit later this week when I knit with friends. I decided to go down a needle size so it feels like I'm knitting with toothpicks but the last couple socks I knitted turned out a little roomy so I'm trying to fix that. Time will tell. Watch, this'll turn out too tight.
I didn't toss anything today because I was sitting paging through all those watercolor books.
