Chocolate, Play and Life Drawing

Hooray! My chocolate bar arrived from April. Thankyou April, there's not much left of it as I write this as a have quite a penchant for the stuff, so it's a good thing I took this photo as soon as it arrived otherwise you wouldn't be able to see how enormous it is! April has a blog called Ugly Rabbit and I was the lucky winner of her giveaway!

Talking of giveaways, I'm having my own this week and if you go to my last post and leave a comment you too can be a winner.I've been having fun painting trees and owls and cats.

And this morning a session of life drawing. This one was done using watercolour pencils.

This one, graphite pencil.

This one pen and ink. This pose reminds me of the Little Mermaid. Maybe I'll do a painting from it one day, afterall, I love pictures of mermaids!

Lucky of you for the chocolate.
Your trees are very nice, with their bright colours.
I've some preference for the orange-yellow one with blue owls.
Nice painting Jessie.

That last one would indeed make a fabulous little mermaid!! :)
I used to enjoy life drawing at college. It was a nice opportunity to draw something you wouldn't normally do. And I used to get such a sense of satisfaction sometimes in getting beautiful shapes with arms or hands or something.
