Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Glorious day today. Found the PERFECT little place to sit and work on our owls, in readiness for the SHAC-Shack session tomorrow…
Early in the morning, the sun shines in on the little Wendy House at the bottom of the garden. So I thought to myself, I thought, “right Mrs. You are going to set yourself up in that there little house for the morning, and enjoy your art. And I did.
I have been up in the artroom above the garage aka THE SHAC-SHACK for days, weeks and months now. And whilst it is lovely, and I am grateful for such a great artspace, it is a WORK SPACE. It is where I WORK. It is the place I associate with WORK, not play.
So today, I made a decision to play, not work. And I got totally immersed in the owls. The energy in the Wendy house is wonderfully tranquil, no traffic on a Sunday morning, and the lighting is ideal. Grace had treated me to a jigsaw puzzle table, which arrived Friday – and is brilliant for colouring too! Perfect.
Rightio. The owls. I haven’t finished them by any stretch! I was trying out different colours and tricks, to share with you, and it’s not a race, is it?! But the eyes have it. Tomorrow we will begin with the eyes….pieceacake.
I’m looking forward to tomorrow morning! It’s been important to stop for a week and regroup, get a few things sorted out, have a think and a tidy up. For all of us I reckon! But now I’m all fired up and raring to go.
Didn’t have to go far to find a slice of heaven. It was right there, in front of me: the Wendy house and the owls.
If you fancy joining me for a little owly colouring session, I will see you at 10am tomorrow, on Facebook LIVE on the Claritystamp Facebook Page. In fact, I think I may squeeze in a cheeky little hour or so now, and figure out what I plan to do in the background…
Tawittawoo! I know what I’ll do! But will it be black? Or will it be blue?
If you haven’t got the Feathered Friends Postcards yet, get them today, and join in too!
As for what to colour in with? Well, I am going to use my Faber Castell Polychromos tin of 60.
Considered purchase for sure, but a brilliant investment if you are wanting to hone your colouring skills. We have a great price on them. CLICK HERE
If you have our Pergaliners, then the greys and neutrals will be an issue (there aren’t any in the box!) So we have also compiled a little set of 12 individual Polychromos pencils, to supplement that collection. You could certainly colour in the owls beautifully with this little set!
A word about our Perga Liners pencils, in case you are new to Clarity and Pergamano. They are great quality. You get 16 blending pencils (same sort as the Polychromos) and 20 watercolour pencils. Down the road I would like to use the water colour pencils during our SHAC-Shack sessions too. Choices, choices, choices.
So I shall love you and leave you, because I wannahaveaplay!
