Ready for a quick perusal of my working area? Here we go...
Tidy desk inside the house... another book I'm reading at the moment - Realistic Abstracts. I promise I don't strategically place them there to tease people. I just dump them there when I come to use the PC. My OH is a terrible tidier but he knows he's not allowed to tidy away stuff on my desk ;)
Messy desk outside in the workshop. I've been playing in my sketchbooks and this is one that I started splashing in at the same time as the one I journal in - there's not much in this one except random colour washes or collaged bits of paper. I keep intending to journal in it but at the moment it's just a place to try techniques. (You can see the journalled one I did the same time as this one, if you have time/are interested, in the post below.)Those rectangular canvasses at the side there are not actually canvasses. I got all three at a bootfair this week for £1. They are actually suede (or suede effect fabric) stretched onto wood. I thought at that price they would be fun to bring home and paint on.
I'm coming to a frightening conclusion... I'm turning into a tidy creative! Whaaaaa? Look at that desk - I haven't touched it since I finished my seriously, seriously messy page the other day! No tidying apart from to put my drawing inks away, out of reach of little hands. Am thinking it must be where I have such a tiny space to work in now, literally the length of that desk. 6' - forcing me to... *gulp* be tidy!
Craig wishes I would just be like it with the rest of the house now! Ahaha! Fat chance!
Thanks for stopping by - I'm off to link up with Julia now. Follow me over if you fancy a root through many, many more peoples play areas :)
