I'm up earlier than usual this morning, today I want to start my next art piece as well as finishing designing and printing cards for next week's craft fair.
I had a lovely walk in the forest yesterday, with my lapphund and my friend and her two flatties. You can see photos on my flickr pages or at her blog which there is a link to on the right - she is 'Forest Walks'. We saw deer (so did Taivas, oops!) and also a few foals. The most amusing part of the walk was that Taivas (my lapphund), who is quite a fastidious little dog, fell into a bog. She was carefully picking her way around the drier places to get back to me when - PLOP - in she went. Both of us were laughing so much we didn't get a photo. Goodness she did stink! Home for a hose down which did not amuse her either.
Now here is the latest on Ghillie and the point that I always start to have doubts as to whether the drawing will be any good. I still find rendering fur very difficult, also getting the shading right to give the depth. I keep telling myself "patience and practice". I am always in a hurry to get a piece finished - I must learn to slow down!
