Silver Crow Project

Summer of Colour Week 3 & Summer Sketchbook Update

Afternoon all :)

Week 3 of Summer of Colour was Purple + Purple + Yellow. I did my week 3 a while ago - in fact, before week 2. So if you follow me on Instagram and think you've seen this already... you have.

I used Derwent Inktense pencils in shades Violet + Fuchsia + Lemon Yellow. Don't ask me where this little fella came from but he reminds me of Sheldon off of Big Bang Theory... around the eyes. Am I going mad? Probably.  Maybe I was watching it or had it on in the background.

I thought I'd show you one more picture of him. Please excuse   his crumpled state - we had the doors open and the breeze must have blown this little index card in the sink. It was full of water - we found the card floating there eventually. I'm really impressed at how bright the colours still are. A testament to Inktense claims that when they set - they really set.

As for what I've been up to. Lots! But I can't show you just yet. I have been working away on the Summer Project set by the school. I start on Monday. Am I anywhere near finished? Am I heck. Mild panic verging on hysteria. Craig reckons this is to prepare us for what's to come. Ease us in gently. Ha! I don't know if what I'm doing is right, if it's enough, if it's good enough, if it'll be done in time... breathe. Breathe. But - I am enjoying it. Strangely. I was hoping this book would be more full by now. (I have to train myself not to sidetracked by the research. I go off on a tangent.) I'll show you again next week, when I start and it should be finished. I'll show you some bits from inside too if you'd like.
So - that's me for now. What have you been up to?
Thanks for stopping by today :)


  1. Oh my goodness! I just love him!! I have yet to complete my SoC...still have 2 to catch up on, or is that 3? Either way he is just FABULOUS! Good luck with school honey! I know from personal experience that easing back into it ain't the way they do it anymore! LOL I'll be keeping an eye on you. Good luck and have a great week!!!!

  2. I only did one SOC I think, so well done you for getting this done - I love it!! Hope you enjoy school next week, I will look forward to hearing all about it! guess this means you may not make Ally Pally later this month again, what with your homework, lol!!

  3. Love that SOC guy, you have a wonderful imagination!

    Oh my goodness, Big School on Monday, that scareeeeeey! Scary AND exciting! I know you'll be nervous but try and roll with it. And OF COURSE we want to see the inside of that tantalising sketchbook!


  4. Sheldon.......yep, totally agree.

  5. Ah he's fab and loving the fact you used the inktense pencils :) you'll be fab on your course - stop stressing and enjoy!

  6. The more I look at him, the more Sheldon-esque he becomes.
