Sanctuary-at home, napping with dogs-TV on. This is my favorite thing to do on a Saturday afternoon. Pencil, watered-down ink in a waterbrush, rapidograph pens, watercolor in moleskine sketchbook.
latest updates: Theme Challenge
One of the most comforting things I can think of is curling up with a cup of hot tea or cocoa and being completely at peace with myself and my world, reflecting and musing on whatever comes to mind.
This is my submission for theme challenge #2 (theme challenge for the month of June 2009).
My submission for “Sanctuary”. Not sure how much of a sanctuary this was in reality because the little guy fell out and I had to put him back before the cat got him. But I like the chubby little guy, and he must have survived because he came to see me for a few years after that every time I was out in the yard—at least I think it was him because he would come very close and chirp at me like he knew me (yes, I think other creatures do have memory).
theme challenge #2.

i don’t know…maybe i just wanted to draw an astronaut ..

Theme challenge, Go For Love. http://susanrudat.blogspot.com/
Go For Love
I was thinking about this month’s theme challenge and started writing a list of symbols associated with love to get myself going. I got hearts, flowers, fruit, outstretched/clasped hands, etc; and then ended up with the idea for something a bit more literal. Definitely a twist on the theme, but ‘giving someone your heart’ is certainly an act of love worth going for, right?
My entry for the May theme “go for love” Tried to get a bit of a story into it.Had a few problems with the watercolor pencils in normal a Moleskine sketch book. I also struggle to get the images under 1MB when scanning does anyone else?
The Theme is open to all each month have a go!Look in the forums section.Anybody else going to have a go?
Mother Love – Inktense and Watercolour on a Watercolour Moleskine
This is an entry for this month’s challenge, the topic is “Go for Love”. Moleskinners are invited to submit a post based on this title. The lack of interest, in the “Forums section” was first highlighted by Nick Powell and the idea of a challenge grew from this. R_sail has kindly offered to come up with a list of topics. More details can be found in the section “Theme Challenge #1”. A new topic will be offered each month. We very much hope lots of folks will participate and, perhaps some feedback might follow.
My drawing shows a mother and foal at Bonnington Farm, Ratho, Scotland, just along the road from my house. The mother is still very protective of her youngster while the wee one keeps close by. The bond/love is obviously very strong. I hope my presence did not distress the pair of them.
