On the Sofa

When I sit on the sofa in the evenings to watch TV, I can't just sit there I need to do something at the same time. Are you like this? I'm making a cardigan at the moment in navy stripes. Yes navy stripes are getting everywhere, not just my drawings!
For those of you interested in knitting you can see my progress on Ravelry. :)

 Most of my drawings are finished very quickly and I tend to use a black Pitt pen and watercolour but today I felt in the mood to do a pencil drawing and what better place to get lost in the process than sitting on the sofa!

It began as a simple doodle but I kept shading and shading until it became a whole page drawing!
Here's the finished drawing. It's rare for me to draw with just a pencil but I really enjoyed it. Perhaps I'll do it again. :)

Wowness...she is so deeply beautiful...I love the tilt of her head..and her gazing eyes off into the distance..very enchanting! Also love how striking yet gentle this piece is..the fabric-design of her clothing stands out beautifully too...exquisite shading and volume in her face..just stunning!!And yay..on the sofa..I am loving your striped creation!

Your drawing is lovely. I'm the same way, I have to have my hands busy. I crochet most nights.

Ah...autumn strikes up creativity. I just got a kromski loom...I think it would be right up your street. It is fantastic fun.
Wow you have been so busy. I must get up and running again.

I can't just sit there either. I start fidgeting. I clean, I paint, I work on projects. Knitting, I can't quite do. :) But I wish I could get into it (hurts my hands), there are a lot of sweaters I would make!

I am a stitcher by the tv or else a rock painter. Mostly in the winter, which is coming soon...
I love your pencil drawing ! How different from your usual brilliant colors and yet beautiful in its greyscale. Love it !
Happy couch play !
