Day 3 of 16

Today started with a little luxury, a lie in!   Guess I'm a little tired and the body is making the most of no alarm call.!

Yesterday went off mooching around the area.   Have discovered that looking at property on Rightmove is a great way to discover places you might not hear of other wise.   The property the link takes you to is very close to a Seal Sanctuary and Mablethorpe beach.    I do hope to be house hunting seriously later this year but for now it is just a learning exercise.   In this case pretty bungalow albeit with a flat roof, it is not in the right place for me.

As a child I suffered dreadfully with motion sickness, and as a passenger still do.   Yesterday a new first I experience this effect.  Guess much as I want to be somewhere rural fewer twisting roads are going to be part of my requirements.  I will be going back to visit the Seal Sanctuary this fortnight.

So not a lot of crafting, in fact no actual crafting but here are a couple of ProMarker practice pieces.   Waves and Flames.   Given that these two subjects are never still it makes them very interesting to draw and paint and they both fascinate me.   These then are my two latest attempts at capturing the life and movement of such insubstantial forms.

The second one also includes one of my favourite birds, a gull flying out of the sun.

Never one to miss a cheeky opportunity I'm sharing this with.

Amusing Challenges - Use 4 or more colours, there are 5 colours in the sun not counting the gull!
Craft a Scene - By the Sea
Open-Minding Crafting - Something with Wings
Flat Friends - Anything but a Card, both of these are in my bleed proof sketchpad.
