We have had a funny old week – I’ve got a lot going on at the moment personally, so this week was a little sporadic and I also missed a day… I needed to have a proper day off from work and everything.
This was a sketch for a blackboard I am working on for a cafe. Not very pretty or neat but I thought it might be good to include something really rough that I then work from. Pencil on paper.
This was the final blackboard – the lighting was a bit weird so the colours don’t show up as well, and this was before it was cleaned up. I was pleased with this, there was a lot of information to get onto one board! Chalk pens on blackboard.
As I said above, I have had not had a lot of time this week, but I had an idea, and whilst this isn’t very representative of the final idea I have, it was a way of getting some ideas down on paper! Fineliner on grid paper.
I missed a day, we have had some stuff going on, and I needed a day off. But back to it, practice with brush pens (not easy…) and some calligraphy. They seemed to work best on tracing paper… they glide well, so this is Arteza Watercolour brush pens on tracing paper!
A little message to my sister and brother from another mother today. They are off back to Australia after a brief visit so I hastily scribbled a message – and a bit more practice with those brush pens! Arteza Watercolour brush pens on grid paper.
The Queens advertising board is almost complete…! There are bits I am not happy with in my perfectionist brain, but it is nearly done. Lots of styles, and colours to hopefully work together and draw the eye! Chalk pens on blackboard.
Next week is looking less busy, and with a bit more time to work on these… we’ll see!
