Fruitful Thursday

Ink & watercolour in small watercolour moleskin

Thursday presented a heap of laundry to get through and a mass of rain clouds...Not a good mix!
I decided to expect nothing from the day and just hang around between washes with my sketchbooks and a movie.

Isn't it funny how the days when we expect nothing surprise us by being some of our most fruitful?
I also managed to sketch a sunflower, finish my cherry tomato ACEO and my watercolour self portrait, which I have yet to upload.

Who said laundry was boring?

You're so right Anita, sometimes, having no expectations just brings along unsuspected great surprises!
Your sketches from this the cherub with the gentel was and I love the skeleton..I love bones of any kind!

Wow, it was a fruitful day. Lovely sketches, the chair is great. Also the Kitagawa Utamaro. He has such a beautiful sense of design. Now what about the ironing? Can you sketch and iron at the same time?;)
