sketchwars has been revived! sister and i are going to choose a room each week in our houses and sketch something from that room. we're still going to include portraits every now and then. and whatever else blows our skirts up.
sometimes when i'm thinking of what to sketch i never think to look around moss cottage - everything is so familiar. like this view of an old street sign hanging crookedly from my bathroom doorway. i have looked at it a bazillion times. the drawing is crude, but full of life for me. i drew it from my bedroom with the sun blazing in through the window.
the loo - another room of the house i don't often photograph. seemed like a good subject for a sketch. and the light flooding the room was so pleasing.
while the sketchbook was drying i turned off my sketching brain and turned on my free-range brain. color shape pattern galore. something broke loose and wanted to roam. so i said yes.
go go go go go go go
and then i made and ate this sandwich.
because i said.
