Sketchcrawl - my day


I tried to drum up some company for a chapter of Sketchcrawl in Sydney, but ended up with a resounding silence. Rather than be detered completely, I thought that I would just stop every now and then through my regular Saturday to make a sketch. Trouble is, when Saturday is the one day of the week to do all of the household jobs, the day sort of got away from me very quickly. We are going to the football tomorrow so the shopping and the washing and the visit to Grandma all had to be done today. That doesn't leave a lot of quiet time for sketching, so this is the best that I could manage. I did, however, knock over a couple of the Everyday Matters Challenges that I hadn't had a go at yet. The lamp is the first thing that I see when I wake up, or would see if 6am weren't so dark. The autumn leaf is for the tree challenge just to let the rest of the world know that it is autumn here when it is spring in the northern hemisphere.

9:10am I had a bad night and woke up late. This is the first thing I would see in the morning if it wasn't dark at my normal getup time.

9:45 Had to go down stairs to get my Moleskine so I made breakfast for a change.

12:07 Can't avoid the washing if I want to go to the football tomorrow.

12:30 Coffee break before starting the grocery shopping.

2:15 Visiting Mum-in-law and collected autumn leaves from the garden.

Hi Robyn, thanks for commenting on my sketchcrawl day sketches! I like yours and I'm wondering what size moleskine you use. Mine are the smaller pocket-sized ones (which I didn't use on the sketchcrawl stuff). This look like a larger page format because I see you've handwritten info on them. By the way, it's probably my computer, but I can't make out the writing.

My one eye keeps me from deciphering all the writing. Some I could, but I look horrible with my nose pressed to the monitor. :-)

Got it from an answer I had sent to you. I got all but the 2:15 apparently. Thanks for deciphering for us. :-)
