Sketchy XIX

…at the top we have the “detailed” plans for what became my paintbox…

…below that we have me running out of ideas and beginning to fill the page with skulls and crossbones before remembering “Phil Mcandrew’s Big List Of Stuff To Draw”…

… somebody posted it ages ago and it’s a wonderful set of prompts for the stuck and (for me) usually ends up like….

…go seek it out….

…but only if you’re stuck.

…(and, no, the paintbox didn’t fit into a banana box when finished)….

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)….

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

Sketchy XIV

…(…”Wednesday” removed to reduce international time difference anxiety…)…

…the “Zealandia” in question is the submerged continent that New Zealand is the top of …not the native bird sanctuary in Wellington…

… the idea has it’s roots in that marvellous H.P. Lovecraft tale “The Call Of Cthulhu”…

…the well-spring of all things tentacly…

…(like I’d suggest burning down a bird sanctuary!)…

Sketchy Wednesday XIII

…or should that be New Improved Sketchy Wednesday On A Sunday Back To Being On A Wednesday Again…..?…

…the “Aztec” octopus idea is recycled from a previous sketch book….

….there is a 6 month lag in posting these pages so I can safely say that this idea goes places….

…lots of places…

Sketchy Wednesday XI

….a double spread to give the Smiggle pen a thorough workout….

….mmmm… 8 colour Smiggle pen….

…(ooo…just noticed that wordpress is squishing the image…unsquished version at….
