Since Christmas break and over the break we have really been spending most of our free time on the house and doing things outside so not a lot of creative things happening around here. We have done a lot of tidy up around the back of the house and I am nearly ready to paint the craft studio on the outside as it really looks so sad now, but a good paint job will make a difference. I have been taking a lot of before photos etc and will show a screed of before and afters once we are finished.
BUT in the meantime I had Craft group today so took a canvas with me that I had drawn up a pic on and had a go at painting and shading with pencils........ I am going to do a few of them to hang up in my bathroom - very cost effective LOL........ meaning free really so it works for me..... so here are some pics of what I did today, not finished but about half way there, lots of shading etc still to do.
EDIT: eek just wanted to say this is not my original artwork, well it is as far as actually drawing it and painting etc but I got the idea from some pics I saw on the net a while ago, unfortunately I cant find where I got them now.......... just wanted to clarify that......
