Is everything going to be old and distressed asks Niels looking at the chair? Only us, I say! Yesterday was band practice. Somewhere in the distant past on this blog I have mentioned that Niels plays drums with various different bands. Yesterday the band (fortunately only small) met here. I took myself off for the afternoon. It was cold and the weather changed in an instant. I stopped to admire the view and as I turned, a stag appeared on the road. He was big and although very aware I was there he showed no fear and calmly crossed over to the other side.
I think I'm becoming a bit obsessed with digital painting and drawing. I've never really used photoshop for photos. I have a very old graphics tablet and pen and I like making my own brushes and textures and using photoshop to draw. I want to make a big picture. We tried first enlarging a card I made recently for a friend's husband. We increased the size and printed it out using 8 sheets of A4 paper. It's now very big. It's only held together with sticky tape and is only a rough. The idea was to see how accurately it would line up when printed. This isn't the picture I want to make.....that's the next step!
