And so, another work week ends and a shiny new weekend begins, with a little bluebird in a tree in answer to today’s prompt. I’m not a landscape painter as I like to view life a bit more macro, so this seemed like
I think your bird is a fine fellow and beautifully done. It sounds like you do a fabulous job of balancing both aspects of your life. I wish we could all do as well! Amazon still hasn’t given me a shipping date, on the DO cookbook, so I’m not sure what’s going on with that.
Thanks so much, Miste! 😃💕 Glad you liked this bird! And hmmm…. There was a lag with Doodlewash, but it appears to be loading fine now. I’m not seeing those issues on my end. But good to know as I’ll check into it. The only real option is to switch hosts to something other than WordPress.com which I’ve looked into. They made lots of changes, so one thing you might try is clearing your browser cache. Site might load a touch slower the first time, but might help with the other issues.
This is soon going to be be a construction site, so, I better sketch a few pictures before and maybe during construction.
Maybe I overdid it a bit with adding structure 🤔 3F88ABDF-DC4F-4D3B-A9CC-196DE99CACC2
If you had left out the structure in the background you would certainly have a different feel, but I don’t that that it would have been better – just different. As it is the brick building is dominant and between the grass and the structure, you have a great sense of depth.
I think the main problem I have is, that at that time of the year places like that just look plain lifeless, wiry and messy. But I don’t know how much time I have left to sketch it. Also I really like the first try of that building, so it set the bar pretty high for a fast scribble. 4BBE0899-952E-4506-A8CC-A05CE655F453
Are you sketching all of this onsite? If not, skip the rest of this, lol. If so, one of things that would speed up the sketch is too simplify while on site. Both the grass the in front and the building have lots of detail, so at first glance the two fight for attention. You could just use color and a very few lines to indicate the grasses…[Read more]
Thank you Mary. I wouldn’t be too pessimistic about that. The house in the back is going to stay. It’s an old farmhouse and you can’t tear them down here – at lest not easily. It’s going to be renovated. However, the red brick house won’t probably last.
Depending on how the construction site is going to be, I absolutely have to document…[Read more]
Your work is excellent the special beauty of the birds thats inspired me.glad to see your wonderful work in doodle wash
Charlie s doing a good work in this field so to meet amazing 🌼 artist of the world
Thanks to being with us.
Such beautiful work! I especially love the sandpiper (I think?) at the bottom of the page! I think you’ve successfully captured that dual effect you were after, his head is so crisp and alert, and the body looks so soft and fluffy with the decreased detail. 🙂
This has been a perfectly lazy weekend and though there was much I could have been doing, I chose to do very little at all. Sometimes, it’s good to unplug and take a little bit of a break. I did, however, manage
I do love snails. Yours is adorable. And your post today gave me a light bulb moment. It just occurred to me that same sex couples living together can wear each other’s clothes if they are the same size! Effectively doubling your wardrobe! My married girlfriends have such different taste that it never even came up before. I’m gobsmacked with the coolness of this idea! 💖
I love your take on life and writings.
Now that Snail painting is a different matter, I really think he should travel, to my home of course, such beauty in little beast, its incredible.
I used to be a Phrenologist, fancy word for recording wildlife and nature in my local woods and updating to Nature Counts.
The little things you see are so amazing, down to the tiniest Larvae, then Moth and Butterfly, and so many things.
Keeps you alive.
Thank you Charlie, send the Snail please.
Yes it is, I have to say Bat counts are my favourite, the Bat monitor makes a zipping noise as they catch insects, and they all have there own frequencies,
So you know which Bat it is, how much it’s eating and best of all where their roost is, a phenomenal sight especially on cold bright nights.
I had lots of photos of Woods and Bats etc, unfortunately
I never got them back from the chap that ran the website.
Maybe I should try to draw from Memory, my drawing skills are not so desirable.
Hey ho, practise makes perfect.
