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 LXIX

…wasn’t expecting to go back to sketchbook pages so soon….

…is this an indicator that I need to work more and take less doodling breaks?…..

…(don’t show my boss)….

…(and forgive me long time followers, it has been far, far too long since I last drew Fat White Jesus)….

Paintbook 33

….can’t quite believe I let posting go for so long that I’m now putting stuff up that’s over 2 years old….

….(…before anyone says anything….the pointy-teeth-mouth has been satisfactorily resolved…see more recent posts from sketchbook)…

Sketchy LXIII

…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….
