She & Me: Work In Progress


Me: Drawing of the corner of the living room, as part of KW Urban Sketchers "Sketch Your Home" challenge. Total time: about 3 half-hour increments over the past 3 days.

She: The Epic Craft continues. There was no more room on the paper, so she started building upwards. Total time: every waking moment of the past 3 days. And I'm pretty sure she crept down to work on it while everyone else was asleep.

She & Me: Craft Box Bonanza

Me: Drew her until she told me to stop and "draw something outside instead". Moved on to a sketch of our snowy backyard for KW Urban Sketchers February challenge. She originally supplied me with a purple Crayola paint marker ("but not the other colours") and a caramel scented ballpoint pen, but eventually took pity on me and handed over a white crayon and the rest of the paint marker set.

She: Used everything in the art supplies box to make The Ultimate Craft.

She & Me: Washi tape, construction paper, princess crayons

Me: Quick sketch of the corner of the playroom for KW Urban Sketchers Feb challenge "Sketch Your Home".
She: Designed, illustrated and bound her own colouring book. No big deal.

Waiting room

Super long wait at the only Lifelabs office open this long weekend. I got lots of good drawing time in. Inspired by a fellow KW Urban Sketcher who sketches everywhere from church to symphony, I have my little book with me and challenge myself to draw wherever I am, especially if there are a lot of people around.

Beautiful mess

Drawn for the KW Urban Sketchers Feb 2014 "Sketch your Home" challenge. Not afraid to admit there are some glaring issues in technique going on here due to the fact that Harry Connick Jr. was on American Idol in the background.

She & Me: oil pastels and washi tape

Me: Ugh. I hate oil pastels.
She: This is a beautiful rainbow. It's behind the trees here. When the rainbow sinks into the trees, the apples come out.

Someone needs some quiet time and a better attitude, and for once it's not the four year old.
