i went for a walk this morning and met this squirrel. isn’t he cute? i’m going to paint him the second i finish this post.
i was toodling around moss cottage this afternoon and thought i would do my first periscope. it was absolutely brilliant. flawless. sort of. not really.
i had 7 viewers. thanks mariainthegarden & michelecooper & somepinkflowers for sitting through the entire wretched thing and being so nice! apparently i laugh when i’m nervous because there was a lot of that. i forgot to introduce myself as i’ve seen other periscopers do. thankfully i didn’t curse. i said, “oh boy” about 20 times. but the really fabulous thing is I DID IT! i’d meant to start in january, but kept putting it off. so today with barely any forethought i just dove in. there is something to be said for spontaneity but next time i will at least make sure i’m not in the sun, i have a paper towel handy, my pens are nearby, and my ipad is ready to go. also if possible i will laugh and shake the table less. but i can’t promise anything!
this was my set-up. i got the tripod arm thingy for $25 buckeroos on amazon. works great. don’t know the name of it, but will hunt it down if someone wants that info.
afterwards i added a bit more ink & sketched some more pears. next time i think i’ll start something then work on finishing it like i’ve seen others do. starting with a blank page (my very last one in this sketchbook!) has it’s drawbacks. mainly that it lasted 18 minutes. i had meant to broadcast for 10.
happy saturday cute people!
