I haven't posted for a few days, and I didn't make it to the Sketchcrawl. Instead, I've been sitting in bed with that 'oh-I'm-getting-a-virus' feeling and a very great tiredness. I'm starting a new job on Monday, and so it's been top of the list to get well and not to fall asleep on my desk on the first day at work. Sometimes you need to be disappointingly sensible, right?
Anyway, in the absence of drawings of the animals (I was so looking forward to drawing the animals!), here's something I prepared earlier.....
Remember this sketch of village houses?
It became a stencil and got three doses of paint.
Red, we love red:
Blue, and green.
And now it's a village again!
I'm working on a whole series of farm and village stencils, with a wall hanging or small quilt in mind. Here are one or two of the others:
I think the bluebird needs a branch, but nothing too big or heavy. And a bead for his eye, of course!
I've got drawings ready for a couple more animals and flowers, and then I'll start thinking about a little quilt to put them in.
