Slacking with the blog posts

I know, I've been slacking again. Wish I could say I have been busy creatively speaking but family obligations have been taking alot of time over the last few weeks that I haven't been as creative as I would like. Anyway, I thought I would post a few pictures of the Easter cards I made - just to give you something new to look at. New drawings are in the works - lots of fluffies and not so fluffys (in fact, more feathered than fluffy).

Challenge Gillian - belated

In March I finally fell off the challenge wagon. Despite trying to fit a completed painting or drawing into each week I had a rather rough week where I did nothing. Yes, absolutely nothing. I lolled around. Since the start of the year I have been very busy and I needed to take a break and let my brain relax. Therefore no painting or drawing was done. I did manage to finish the two dog portraits I started in February throughout March. The pencil drawing turned out OK but the watercolour isn't so great. In fact I hate it. By the time I got to finishing it I was fed up with it, having drawn the same image in pencil. I'm not very good at drawing the same thing over and over - I get bored.

However, my garden has become a bit of a haven to some new wildlife. The bank voles are back, pheasants come daily to be fed and some red legged partridges come every now and then. The partridges are particularly fun to watch. They remind me of little rugby balls on legs. So I just had to sketch a few.

We are already into April though and I have missed the first of my Sunday deadlines. I will need to try and catch up. Unfortunately my tax return arrived this morning and that will be the first thing that has to be done this week.
