Went and see the film “Saving Mr Banks” today, and thought it would be nice to have a Disney themed last picture. I think this is really the first time in my entire life I tried to draw a Mickey,
And a quick little painting of a red car. The flash bleached the colour a bit, it is more red than this.
Trying to do an aeroplane. From a photo by Herman Potgieter, South African Airforce Mirage F1.
Witch on broomstick in front of gibbous moon. Congratulations on anyone who can guess what I read recently.
And since I was doing two today, some more dancers. I actually like this one. Maybe it is because the legs and faces are perfect.
And yesterday while walking the dog I saw a little snake. It was shorter than my foot, and very scared. It is the first time in many years I saw one, and I was really chuffed about it. And a
Finally all the batteries are charged and synchronised with my postings. So I am up to date. I would love to do another forging challenge. Te big problem is the coal forges are too slow to start up for an
And the glistening of the wet paint actually look good. Not feeling well tonight. Going to bed now.
A little bit late. Only when I switched of my computer at midnight I remembered about thing a day. So I did this first thing in the morning. Before coffee. That is my excuse.
And this image popped into my head today, so I tried my best. The riots are real, lots of protest against wrong electricity bills. The library, police station, and a few other places were burnt down, most of the shops
And since rioters are burning the town, a fire to commemorate the occasion. I think I will do an easier subject tomorrow.
And I finally found my other brushes, so I had a go at doing a washy sort of effect. And tried to make some more numbers. My 8 has improved.
And on the third day I explored new colours in the box. And tried to make numbers. Who could have thought an eight was so difficult?
Fiddling around with techniques. I did try to look for some bird pictures online but my pc crashed on me, so this is from my head. As you can see, there are strange things in my head.
This years thing a day is going to be watercolours. A set of cheap children water paint, and I managed to find two little brushes. Will try to buy better ones on
Why so serious? My first ever attempt at doing a self portrait and I saw again how handsome I am. This was a very succesful year for me. I set out to do sketches and I did do them, even though
“Oozing charm from every pore He oiled his way around the floor. And when at last the dance was done, He glowed as if he knew he’d won!”
And meeting my old enemy, Round Stuff, again. This battle was a draw. Lifting ring from a 155mm howitzer shell and a drag ring from a 127mm multiple rocket launcher.
And a pinecone, the little mug is just to keep it from rolling over. I did put in effort to try and make it as accurate as possible, and it shows. Happy with this one.
And when I knocked this of the table I decided it was going to get drawn. So I slashed a few strokes and there was a ghost. No quarter given. Sorry. I bought this little souvenir letter opener at the
And today’s terrible picture. At least the pilot doesn’t look happy about it. Another one of my toys.
This is better than it looks, the tilted picture makes the mast looks shorter. Another late night rushed drawing.
My pencil box. Oak, clear satin varnish. Leftover from a batch made for a customer, using up all the off-cuts in the workshop.
