Today’s Inktober theme is Ripe. When we came home from holiday last month one of our tomato plants was covered in ripe tomatoes. I made a mental note to pick them later that day but when I went outside again the plant was bare and one of our labradors looked a little fatter! The greedy little madam had eaten the lot.
Today’s Inktober theme is Catch so I thought back to last weekends World Cup semi final between England and New Zealand. One of the best matches I have ever seen and a great result for England. Looking forward to the final on Saturday.
Day 29 of Inktober and the theme is Injury. I remembered this scene in an old Carry on Doctor film when the hapless Jim Dale has to examine Barbara Windsor. I can’t remember what was wrong or why she was only dressed in three strategically placed hearts. They are watched over by Hattie Jaques as the fearsome matron.
I walk over this bridge every morning when I walk the dogs and I have been meaning to paint it all summer. This morning the colours were so good I went back and spent a happy hour painting.
Today’s Inktober theme is Coat. When I was a young boy in the 50’s a large part of tv programming was taken up with cowboy films. I am pretty sure I would have wanted a coat like this if they made them to fit six year old gunslingers.
Day 26 of Inktober and the theme is Dark. It is harder than I expected to get a solid black with acrylic ink!
Great life drawing session at Poole and East Dorset Art Society last night. Thanks to Trish the tutor and Tom the model for a challenging session.
