Here's what happened. I had to move my art table away from the wall so that my broken window blind could be fixed. You see my scanner sits at the back of my art table and there is... (was) a small gap between the table and the wall. The blind was fixed, all was good until...
I wanted to use the scanner. I lifted the lid and the whole thing fell CRASH off the back of the table. THE GAP WAS TOO WIDE BETWEEN THE TABLE AND WALL!
I thought it was just injured
but it was dead.
I need my scanner to get clear images of my paintings and so now I have to do with taking photos of them instead. I hope these aren't too bad quality, my camera's not particularly clever or expensive but it does its best. :)
So let me show you what I've been doing of late.
The images I've shown you so far are in my sketchbook. The top one is inspired by a book I read recently called The Snow Child. There isn't any Snow Queen in the book but hey, artistic license and all that! ;)
The open pages of my sketchbook show on the left, a tiny glimpse of a sketch I copied out of a magazine (something I've not done for years!) and on the right a pen doodle using just black and purple.
After struggling to follow that knitting pattern for so long I really have the need for a more relaxed way of knitting so I've started some free-styley colour knitting.
MUCH more relaxing, no counting and no reading ancient hieroglyphics.
