Sketches

Well, I should have known better 
than to set myself a task of daily sketches 
during my birthday month - March. 

Michelle and Beau also had birthdays in March, 
then there was Saint Paddy's day.
A few bad pain days,
A few medical appointments, 
Choir practise,
my youngest granddaughter 
breaking her arm near the wrist 
so more hospital visits. 
I went on my first sketch outing 
with an Urban Sketchers group in Brissie 
(more on that in a later post)
oh, and then there was the trip to see Elton John...

Let's just say it's been a very busy month! 

I did manage some sketches.

This pencil-free sketch was of some birthday candles drawn in my pocket Moleskine sketchbook 
using ballpoint pens and PITT pens for definition.

On my birthday, Brad and I went to see 
Elton John's Million Dollar Piano Las Vegas show 
which was being screened at selected cinemas here in Brissie. 
Naturally, we had to add a bit of bling for the occasion. 
We had a blast!

On that note, 
I will say goodnight! xx

  11. Have been enjoying looking at your beautiful sketches. A belated birthday wishes. I am having so many issues following blogs at the moment. Trying to get the bloglovin going and finding it equally cumbersome
