Back in early December I decided that drawing my outfits would be good practice.  A sound theory, but although I really liked the idea of keeping a record of what I wear, I wasn’t happy with how they looked.  Back to the drawing board.

I gave up on the idea of drawing croquis from scratch each time (because, frankly, I suck at it) so got myself a template and am starting again.

Street Art #197

Yet more photos that were languishing on my PC (sorry Arch!).  Here we have a selection from Manchester.  Absolutely love that bird!

A special sketchblog post today.  This is a painting I gave to my friends Ginge and Ellie this weekend in celebration of their birthdays (turning a respective 50 and 40).  Ginge is a friend who shares my appreciation of street art and often sends me photos of the interesting pieces he spots.

Happy birthday you two!

Oh the shame of finding a folder of mislaid photos on my computer!  These were kindly taken for me by a friend (hi Daisy!) who visited Germany back in, er, July.  I am suitably red-faced, but still grateful for her photos.  Especially as some of them are fragments of the Berlin wall that have been preserved.

Buckle up, it’s my holiday diary!  We took a rare winter holiday and explored parts of Yorkshire, which was delightful.  I hope you enjoy my ramblings.
