Firstly, if you would like to join in with this weekly tour of crafty workspaces, go to Julia's Stamping Ground for more details and a linky thing.
Secondly, if you are wondering how to fill a few hours each week and would like to learn lots about mixed media/art, then click on the link for Life Book 2017 in my sidebar (yes, the 20% discount is still running too). I have learnt so much and gained so much confidence already - and we are only on week three!
My messy table is showing signs of real craftiness right now. In fact, it is exactly as I left it yesterday afternoon - after two sessions of sketching/painting my self portrait I was really tired (mentally and physically), so just downed tools (brushes and palette knife). Naughty me - the paint will be dried now and the brushes harder to clean, but sometimes I have to think of my health more. I went downstairs and watched the final two programmes from the Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year 2014 instead - so very inspiring and educational, as well as resting my body.
Here I am now, fairly early on Wednesday morning (I am getting more general pain throughout my body, which forces me out of bed earlier than I would like, as I get more active again after making a nearly full recovery from the horrible flu), with a messy table and a self portrait with scary green eyes (my eyes are actually blue, and my hair is not blue - but I wanted to relax more and not be so formal with it). I really need to spend some time on those eyes!
Happy WOYWW to all those that I do not manage to visit this week.
I will be doing a separate blog post about Life Book 2017, so come back to see all of the finished pieces from Weeks One-Three.
