I've changed my hobby of drawing charcoal sketches of friends from photographs - to drawing objects, from real life, with no given amount of time. I think this method is particularly useful for me, because I have a terrible habit of keeping on drawing, and fixing, and rubbing out; until I ruin the whole drawing. So, without time restraints, I am forced to stop myself from drawing when it's as finished as possible. Here are some of the outcomes of my Saturday at home.
I do love the old polaroid camera and what they produce, but they can be used around your room so wrongly, making it look tacky and mainstream. Although these photos above have inspired me to stop being negative and take a creative approach to presenting these photographs.
Another animal that I have not loved prior to reading the Obernewyton Chronicles is; horses. The last time I rode a horse it was a spotty one that was supposed to be calm and simple (quite similar looking to the horse in the photo above). I thought, Great. I should be able to handle this. In the end it nearly bucked me off numerous times, chased other horses down hills into creeks and scared the living shit out of me for every torturous second I was on it.
Anyway, I wouldn't mind testing out horse riding again, I have grown to be in awe of their size and manner rather then frightened. But again, this is most likely because the horses in my book can put thoughts into other's minds..
I have grown quite a yearning to acquire a cat. I suppose it has grown from the latest book series I am reading, Obnewyton Chronicles. You should read the series if your fond of any end of world/fantasy themed shit. Back to cats, I have to admit that for majority of my life I haven't been a fan of the unpredictable animals, but there's something knowledgable about them that makes them seem dependant even if they roam more then they stay home.
The colour purple can be so vibrant and beautiful when it's put against earthy colours. I love the photograph above of the lavender trees surrounding the little cottage. I wish I lived somewhere green and lush :|
I adore red heels, turtles as pets, green green grass (virtually non existent where I live), shabby chic bedrooms and reading no matter where you are. I can really relate to all of these adorations actually..
