I spent some time in the studio on Friday having a tidy up and shuffle around, after which I treated myself to a 'classic' blend coffee from my Tassimo machine and a sketch-break.
EDM challenge no. 9 was to sketch some organised chaos...Hmmm! I probably should have tackled that challenge BEFORE tidying up. Still, I'd created my own little piece of organised chaos on my desk top by then so that's what I sketched.
The hardest part of this sketch was the fact that I had been daft enough to include my FULL coffee cup in it - Temptation at it's most extreme!

After guzzling down my luke warm cuppa I flicked through my little book of challenges looking for another suitable subject to sketch before picking my youngest up from school. No. 48 was to sketch your New Year resolution/goal, these have always seemed rather strange to me (read why)so I really don't consider them much usually but I had made myself a personal promise that I would sketch from life, travel around while doing so and experiment while having fun and learning. Just me, my sketchbooks and my faithful old boots all through the summer months!
...So, that's what I sketched...My gorgeous sketchbooks!

I also tackled a third EDM challenge on location Friday evening (no.15 Tree) which you can view in my Location Sketchbook
