#ippdailydraw August 29th 2012 -my studio plus notice of opportunity

Here’s my attempt for today – which I partially like… it’s another section of my summerhouse studio. Read on for information about the ippdailydraw opportunity…

I thought it would be really nice to have a showcase page on my blog of one piece of work from each person who has taken part in ippdailydraw with a link to a website of your choice and a couple of sentences about you underneath the image. With that in mind – if you’ve taken part, please be thinking what your favourite two pieces might be. Assuming you want to join in – entirely optional.

Then over the weekend ( I will be in London on Saturday) send me a couple of choices by email with your details so that I can chose one for my site – oh the power!!  I know not everyone is a tweeter so I will try to alert the Flickr group but hopefully they will see this blog too. I don’t want to put my email up here but you can either DM me on Twitter or contact me through Moobaacluck.com “get in touch” – i’ll reply and you can email me your images. I am not really power crazed so if there is one image that you really want me to use you can just send me that 🙂

Also I am pondering on a less time demanding but still fun or interesting project for September. I’ll let you know when I’ve decided on something and hopefully some of you and some new people will want to join in. I’d be doing another showcase for this and all future projects too.

Only two days left!!

#ippdailydraw August 11th – biro drawing

I have masses to do today but seem to be rooted in bed with a cup of tea. Today I have orders to paint and a picnic to go to…

I squeezed this drawing in just after finishing the orders. I used to draw with biro throughout my childhood – usually fashion drawings! This biro was blobby and the surface was a single sheet of paper over a bumpy table.

Tomorrow I am going to Mannington Hall to set up stall as Moobaacluck for their craft day…so there is all the preparation to do for that. It’s been a very busy week order wise which means I have’t been able to do anything new for the show but I still have quite a lot of stock. If I sell some of that and meet some new customers I will be happy. Plus there is a wonderful cafe there called The Greedy Goose run by my friend Helen. Maybe she’ll sneak me a cake;)

#ippdailydraw Late with Aug 6th


Self portrait

I am behind … August 7th ‘s drawing to follow later today.

As yet I feel I’ve done some ‘good’ drawings and some terrible ones… which you haven’t really seen! The main thing is to do it. At some point I hope I will start to feel that I draw with no anxiety. May take all four weeks or longer. Wouldn’t it be great if we all find that drawing becomes a habit.
