I’m now at the end of my second week staying at home and although I have only had 3 face to face conversations with people, it’s been an extremely social time. Between all the phonecalls, Skype chats and livestreams, I feel more connected with some people than ever! It’s sad not to be around people, but as an introvert, I’m super happy to be at home.
The highlight of last week was a Skype birthday party with 6 adults and 6 children. Both my brother and sister had birthdays, so we enjoyed watching my brother’s family have their cake celebration. I tried to do some blind contour sketches at the time but even that was hard with everyone moving so much. My brother sent me a photo of the cake, so I had to sketch it – each quadrant was decorated by one of his children. So sweet!
This past week has been extremely hectic with work and I struggled to find time to sketch. This coming week will be similar, but I’m happy with what I’m achieving and hope to ramp it up soon.
So here are my pages in full.
My Wilkhahn On chair sketch as part of a challenge by Rob Sketcherman. See here for more details.
Some days all I can manage is a tea and coffee sketch – but that’s okay! More about this teacup sketch here.
More views of my On chair.
I’m still dressing for a work day even though I’m staying home. I don’t usually wear my normal shoes inside (I have dedicated home shoes) but I like deciding what shoes to wear and matching them to my outfits. In fact I think that in the coming week I’m going to dress up even more and wear some heels!
And also my soup and a few watercolour tests as I gear up for a Group Run-through of my Watercolour course.
So there you have it! A busy week but I managed to do some fun pages. I actually have lots of ideas of things to sketch from home, but have very limited time at the moment.
Hope you are all going okay – sending you another big hug! Take care my friends.
