Oh my poor blog!
I have been neglecting it so much!
For those of you who don't know, we have a new puppy and this has meant my art has had to take a back seat for a bit - just while I need eyes in the front, back and sides of my head!
But I have been getting a twinge of withdrawal and so as I sat in the lounge on Saturday afternoon, while Sherlock was fast asleep, I sketched my 'emergency mouse', just so I had something to post :0)
It's funny, when ever I'm short of art to show, I always seem to draw a baby or a mouse. What's that about??
Anyway - at the weekend I did finally manage some time in the studio and began working on the new bear.
I have pretty much finished the background - all but the shadows - and now comes the fun part; the fabric of the curtains.
For some reason I'm really looking forward to conveying the folds and the way the light hits them :0)
You can expect some more 'emergency' posts for a while - but I hope you at least enjoy a change from glasses and bears :0)
Meanwhile, here is a photo I took of Sherlock sleeping the other day....
... Seriously - that pup has NO dignity!!
