If you remember, I started a large graphite and charcoal drawing of some specimens my Sweetie collected (they are Scanning Electron Microscope images of a critter - a brittle star - called Ophiocomella sexradiata but I'm just calling her O Sexy :)
The brittle star is a pretty thing, long legged with legs (or is that arms) that look tattooed with color. I am going to do the 4 block around the edges with graphite and charcoal and the middle as she is in real life, in color.
These photos give you an idea of where I am (finished the two lefthand blocks) and where I'm going next (the middle brittle star in color).
Time to get out the watercolor pencils for the color.
I am in the healing process after a "minor" surgery on Friday the 23rd. (Surgery never seems "minor" when it's your body and I was very afraid and anxious about it because I've never had anything surgical done other than a biopsy decades ago.)
I 'll be fine and will take care of myself, being careful not to overdo it. A good time to draw or paint or see art on blogs or watch t.v. or read or...you get the idea :)
Here is a bad photo of the flowers my sister and brother-in-law sent. The vase was supposed to be cobalt blue and it is - but you can only see that when you hold it up to the light. It's dark and frosted, I think, but it's blue. The hydrangea is pale blue. There are white lilies and white roses in there, too = pretty and smells great!
