View Full Version : WDE May15 Best excuse ever for REALLY Late !!

I am sorry that dabblerdotjr and I were unable to participate in the past WDE. On Sat.ddjr had her own 'creative event' going on, and I was there to coach.
The next day, sitting at her bedside, I did do a 2 hr water colour/gouache of the inside garden with the arched windows on her wc paper and it was pretty good. Oh, wait a minute, you can't see it, so it was really, really good ! :D ;)
Alas I forgot to bring it home with me and am not prepared to do the 9 hr round trip to get it :) However, on the 20 min ferry ride that is on the way home, I did do the attached sketch (sorry, not from the beautiful WDE images tho') from memory (I'd gazed long enough to memorize it !) Black ballpoint on ordinary printer paper, image 9"x7"
I will be back this W/E tho' can't speak for ddjr- depends on her schedule- which will be very full for the next 18 or so years !

Thanks all, for the warm congratulations ! Yes she's named Mari (good vision, stonewhiteclown!) and I'm about to start her collection of crayons and paper... she should be able to start drawing when her vision clears, shouldn't she ? :D
Now to get ready for this weeks WDE, and I shall return to look at last weeks work, next week, as well as this weeks work... uuummm, you know what I mean !!
Cheers, all !
