Well I have been keeping up my daily sketches in my diary. One thing that I’ve found out is that real life is really boring. When it comes down to what I will be doing each day in my notes it’s simply stuff like shopping for food (which I dislike) housework (same) or gardening or watering (I’m not very keen on that either). My day to day life isn’t at all like what I see on social media, no glamming it at the races, theatres, dinners, sporting events or constant overseas holidays.
Being an introvert I am happy with my own space and a paintbrush for company. I do get out to have the occasional bush walk or stroll along the beach but that’s because it’s all only 5 minutes away. This image I found on facebook sums it up.
So here’s what my days are all about. The sketches are mainly gouache but sometimes a bit of pen and watercolour, and the images are all square because that’s how Instagram likes it. I’ve also only just found out what hash tags do. I know I’ve been living in the dark ages but I am learning. You know – Old dogs New tricks : ) The desire to communicate also engenders the desire to learn.
