Sketchy XVIII

….below is an attempt to use the 8 colour pen in 9 x 3 colour combinations…

…a bit bland for my liking but the idea is pursued in paintbook for the next few “Paintbook” posts…

…(some results may vary)….

The Return Of Sketchy

…or “Sketchy XVII” in the parlance that was being used late last year when last I dipped into the the bottomless sketchbook….

….a continuance of the “aztec” octopus thing from the sketch book just on a year ago….

…(….really, Tony?….really?…a whole f**cking year?…..)….

….(….mmmm…notes to self….did I “action” those?….)….

…(…er….probably not…)….

Not As Directionless As I Implied

….pre yesterday’s template piece….

…3 days later….

…outside the sketchbook pieces….

…to the right is a pre-template-ruled-line-felt-marker job…to the left is a post-template-with-new-improved-skull-size-standardisation-colour-pencil job….

….no, I won’t be making enough to paper the hallway….

…(or will I?)….

Directionless

…well almost….

…am juggling several small projects (between work days) during lockdown…

…the above is a template for one of those…

…waiting for the paint shop to open again so I can get the last three colours for that enormous piece that needs finished….

…busy, busy, but not blogging regularly….

Saturday Night Lockdown Flyby

…this is piece is taking forever…

…big burning (pyrography) session over the next couple of days….

…then a bit of line work and it’s done!….

…can’t wait to get on to a scree of unfinished smaller odds and sods that are piling up around the place…

….maybe chuck some more paint on those octopuses….

…yeeeess….

….paint the octopuses….

Big Secret Project V

…I was going to post (again) about the grand first bite of that huge record accumulation at Restore, 7 Gordon St., Dunedin Central at 10.am today….

…but was so excited about “selling” records again that I neglected to take pic’s of my very overladen car or the carefully shrouded, 20 crate lump all ready to table at the store…

…so here’s a picture I painted to look at whilst you wait for the doors to open…

…it’s one of a series of ten I did during lockdown last year…

…(cue elevator music)….

……see you at 10.a.m.
