Mixing Matters



Somehow, despite all my good intentions, I got stuck in front of the idiot box again last night but determined not to sit doing nothing so I drew the one thing I knew would sit still for me - again - my feet (and toes being drawn in my sketchbook). Inspired by my new books on journal sketchbooks, I'm trying desperately to get out my comfort zone and be more experimental with media, loosen up my style and generally develop my doodles so with a little Payne's Grey I dabbled my toes with watercolour. Funny distortions to the shape of my feet as they were pressed against the edge of the coffee table.

Love it - a touch Escher-like! Perhaps you could grip a pencil in those toes to complete the paradox :)

Ho! A Nice one! I do that too!! I keep drawing my feet; poor things are always 'posing' down there!! :)

Thank you, Michael. I thought it was Escher-ish but didn't want to presume to liken my doodle to him. Happy that you did! :-)

Shalini - they are just so willing and always around when you need them! :-p
