Since September my life has been taken over by my Primary PGCE course... but every now and then I need to paint/sketch/ANYTHING ART RELATED to feel like I've not lost myself completely in all this chaos. My time is not my own and I have zero social life.... but I do have a pussy cat.

|Yuffie June 2014|
Thursday, June 5, 2014
A few days ago I took a plank of wood into the workshop and carved these hearts using mainly a circular sander. Great fun!
They are still unfinished... I am going to paint them and then taking them back into the workshop to partly sand away the paint to create a rustic look (hopefully) then I will hang them using a selection of different strands of wool. I have chosen neutral tones and that compliment the natural grain of the wood.
So... we adopted a little kitten and called her Yuffie (inspired by Final Fantasy 7) and this afternoon I attempted to draw her as she attacked my pencil... and ran around the room hyper... so really it was like mission impossible and I'm going to have another go and this time work from a photograph! Little rascal!
This is the first time I have used my new PanPastels and I LOVE them! They work brilliantly with Derwent ColourSoft pencils and normal chalks. I also combined graphite and Prismacolour pencils.
Follow me on Instagram for more frequent updates and to see a video of Yuffie bullying me while I try to work... :)
