This was our lawn yesterday but its outside, not inside. Lots of unlucky householders have to contend with thigh high floodwater in their homes and that must take weeks/months to clear
I'm so looking forward to getting some brighter skies again. I have been working on my coloured pencil drawings in readiness for submission to UKCPS. I had planned to submit two entries yesterday but haven't been able to get decent photos because of the poor light.
This is the best I can manage for Lulu, but the picture is still a tad dark so I'll try again later in the week to get more accurate colour. The background looks grey but is actually white. I've added about 8 more subtle layers of colour to her skin/hair since the last update. This is cropped to the shape/size of the frame I'll be using
This was the previous update
I can't get a good photo of the gorilla at the moment (particularly difficult as its on a black background which I struggle to phtograph at the best of times). Will update later in the week.
In the meantime, I've been putting Photoshop Elements 12 to good use. I haven't got many 'old' photographs - most seem to have been lost in divorce/house-moves etc. So, when visiting my Mum at the weekend I had a look through her scanty collection of pictures. She didn't have anything in albums but just an assortment of photos in a box.
I love this old photo of my Mum - sadly little bruv got his hands on it as you can see (think he was about 6 at the time but should have known better)!
and with some tidying up with Photoshop: got rid of the writing, some stains and creases etc
and this is an old an old snapshot of her parents (my Nan and Grandad)
and cleaned up/cropped
