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….

Use Your Lockdown Wisely

….or not, depending on how much kids craft clay you have….

….this stuff cost $2 at the dump shop and I’m assuming that the previous owner had two packs and ditched the unopened one when they found how difficult it was to work with and how “dead-fish” slimy it was to handle….

..but hey, I had an extra day off presented to me at short notice and couldn’t think of anything better to do with said day, so I persevered….

…(the skeleton is from an earlier “sculpting” session…I suck at 3D….but give it a bash every once in awhile to see if I’ve acquired the skill whilst not practicing….er….that’s a nope on the skill acquisition by osmosis thing…)

…the small white ball at the front is the “change” from the 6 pack…

…the skeleton will be included in the final piece…

..(oh yes, there is a final piece)…

…back to a half day of work tomorrow at 1pm….

…(wish I had more clay for tomorrow morning)…

Accumulation Drop The Second

…Restore, 7 Gordon Street, Dunedin Central…10a.m. sharp…

…10 more crates have been added to the accumulation…

…a sample….

…and another sample…..

…worked all day at the coal face…

…packed 10 crates into the car…

…processed 12 crates….

…dug 10 crates out from under the work bench in the garage…

…pile seems to be the same size…

….lots of empty crates at Restore….

…more of the same (but different) next week.

Ladies And Gentlemen Start Your Engines

…. 20 crates (count ’em) of the record accumulation I’m currently processing will drop on the 4th of July, 2021, at Restore, 7 Gordon Street, Dunedin Central…

…here’s a random crate…

…ah, crap….let me try that again….

….the stack of 70 crates featured in last week’s post now sits at 72 with more to come from inside the house….

…we’ll be adding more crates to Restore’s stock every week for some time to come…

…something in there for almost everyone…

…with…so…much…more…to…come….

…see you Sunday, 11a.m…..

…er…

… and every subsequent Sunday…

…until it’s all done.
