I haven't done any artwork in over a week! In my defence, I've had a few things going on in my 9-5 which has distracted me from my sketchbook at lunchtimes but the main reason is that I've just been a bit too lazy!
I have been busy rallying the world and his dog to vote for my Be a Biographer design which I am sure everyone is fed up hearing about by now but fingers crossed all my badgering has done the trick and I might have made it through to the final of my section - I'll find out tomorrow.
Also I was given a reprieve for the Artway competition I wanted to enter - the closing date was supposed to be today but I checked on the website and discovered that due to popular request the deadline has been extended to 21 November so I may just manage to drag myself away from the sketchbook project in time to get a piece done after all.
As for the never ending sketchbook project - I did sketch #14 today. We were driving back from Cloughey beach yesterday when I noticed the landscape looked quite rounded in the horizon with a wee house perched on the top of a hill. It must have stuck in my head as I started doodling today and came up with this imaginary landscape based on that idea. I liked the whole distorted building thing from my sketch of Cornmarket so tried it again to twist the buildings in this one. I started painting the houses, decided I liked the orange/red/terracotta shades and ended up doing the whole picture in those tones which sort of inspired the name - a patchwork orange.
