Skull Drawing

I thought the delivery of my intended early birthday present was not until the end of this month but look what arrived 2 days ago! My fancy-pants markers. I got this grey set as well as a skin tone set, which I will play with next. 

Here are the results of some quality evening time on the couch watching trashy television with my Hubs. I'm excited to see this as a fabric design.

Colour Theory: Make 100 Colours



What a fun way to break in a new set of watercolours! Make 100 colours. Or 60, in our case, as we only had small watercolour paper on hand. It turned out to be a nicely meditative way to learn about colour theory that was more challenging than I expected.




The kid normally loves colour mixing more than painting itself but he petered out about half way, stating he wanted to finish it tomorrow. Interestingly, though, during clean up, he started playing with various colours in our plastic egg carton spending more time colouring mixing in water than he did on paper. Whatever floats your boat!

Oh, Markers, Where Art Thou?



I'm somewhat desperately, not so patiently, waiting for my fancy-pants markers to arrive in the mail. I ordered them in January indulging in an early birthday present. I thought. But now they are saying they won't be shipped until the end of April which is on the eve of my birthday, actually. At this point I'll be lucky if they aren't late.

In the meantime, I'm drawing and saving up things to colour for when they do finally arrive! I can't wait to see this one in a variety of greys. I'm thinking fabric design?
