WIPs…

Work In Progress…

I’ve been a bit scatterbrained lately… I find myself walking away from something and then not remembering to come back to it until the next day or longer. It has a lot to do with the pups requesting an outing and then me having to take care of something upon returning and completely forgetting or just not being able to get back to the *thing* I was working on before.

I’ve decided not to sweat it… today I was thinking that I just have location projects… as in, a project for when I can sit at the computer, a project at my art desk, and a project that I can take into the living room and work on while sitting on the floor with the dogs. 😀 So now I have *at least* three projects going on at the same time.

WIP computer

I actually drew this in the living room in my art journal, then scanned it onto my computer.  Then I started to color it…

One morning I was on a dog walk and my phone had a suggestion from amazon for a dip feather pen… I was pretty intrigued… once I got home I did some research and realized that I was more interested in getting good quality nips rather than the fancy feather bit.  So I did some nib research on the kinds of nibs for the type of art I was interested in and decided to get a few different nips to try out.  I waited a few days for my package to arrive, instead of it taking a week it only took 2 days because I live in the same state as the online store.  Unfortunately, my mail carrier seems to believe, “if it bends, it fits”…

I had also purchased some special paper that the nibs wouldn’t catch on… I was not happy to see this.  But luck was on my side because the pad of paper somehow got out of that undamaged…

Nibs: School, Japanese (Nihonji) , Maru (mapping) Hard, Maru (mapping) Soft, and G; Deleter Comic Book Paper (smooth, heavy, catch-free drawing experience)

for reference, I had this from my Inktober box that I got back in October…

Saji (Spoon) nib

I made quite a mess 🙂 and I learned a lot… so far I’ve been able to try out 3 of the new nibs …

After making quite a mess with the nib pens, I decided I needed to let my art piece dry, so I found myself in the living room with my art journal and I started this piece with a brush pen…

Photography

In the back of my mind I have other ideas and a longing to get back to photographing again. It’s been sooo long since I’ve had a good long outside zen session with my camera. It rained a few days ago and now that the pups are starting to show some signs of chilling out, I took my camera out alone to take a few photos of raindrops (my favorite subject). I am out of yoga/photog shape, heh, squatting and balancing for a long period of time is difficult now – my knee said, “DUDE!” as I limped home. I need to get back in shape! I was able to get a few good shots, enjoy…

Until next time…
