Paintbook 38

…so, in the top left corner of the colour page from the last post there is a stylised representation of what a grouping of the fang-toothed-octopuses-in-a-variety-of-colours would look like….

…I wanted to investigate that further without having to do the whole damn thing and smashed out a couple of small, reversible templates to do this….

….(quietly, very pleased with the results)….

…(and, accidentally, solved the not-so-popular-fang-toothed problem)….

Paintbook 37

…Paintbook is not only a place to express ideas in colour seperate from that dirty, broken old A5 thing I call a sketch book, it is also a place to stick bits of grease proof paper that I’ve used to create a reverse image of a piece I’d like to replicate facing the other way….

…(the finished piece marked “C” is the reverse image of which I speak and seems to have wandered off…lucky the other two are enough of a prompt to get the process rolling again!)….

…Sketchbook is also a repository for layouts of “The Greater Plan” I mentioned yesterday…..

…(…25 multi-coloured octopus panels on A4 sized sheets of light ply…probably have to be a retirement project)….

Sketchy LXIII

….back to the daily “grind”…

…in the left hand…a cup of tea for 15 minutes…a cup of tea and two sandwiches for 30 minutes…and a cup of tea for 15 minutes…

….in the right hand…the four colour pen….

…result….

Sketchy XXXXIII

…(imagine a happy, pleased-with-ones-self, humming sound)…

…(you can stop imagining the humming sound now)….

…(swapped the toothy maw of contemporary octo-drawings for a less bitey, querulous o-shaped mouth….resume the humming sound)….
