Drawing a Tiger (Eventually)
I've been rather distracted today. Not sure why. Every time I got interrupted for the loo, or the phone, or anything else, I found I simply had to check my email, just in case. And then, as if by magic, I would lose 20 minutes, 30 minutes, or worse to the dreaded computer. Facebook, you are a fiend! I really should turn it off. But then I might miss something genuinely important...
Anyway, I did manage to get a reasonable amount done today and yesterday, despite myself. I finished off my monkeys and bunny and made a start on the octopus above yesterday. This morning I finished him off:
Confession time: I nicked the cute star-sunglasses idea from this detail in a lovely book George and Ghost, by my good friend Cassia Thomas (hope you don't mind Cass x):
This afternoon, made a start on the tiger ('Baby can colour'), who is crayoning a portrait of his little spider friend. Ahhhhh....
I should have got much further on with him really, but it was then that the worst of my fidgitiness kicked in. Bad girl. Come 6 o'clock, I told myself I would work harder tomorrow, then realised it was the weekend.
What a shame.
