This is mine:
- Domestic admin. This includes cat requirements, breakfast, and checking to see what world-grade awfulness I might be required to comment on via Facebook or Twitter.
- Go for a run or, if the weather is a bit feisty, a walk. [I draw the line at anything approaching apocalyptic horizontal rain or Zeus in a bad mood]
- Pick up the trail of social media biscuit crumbs I left earlier and that someone’s turned into explosively prevaricatory material.
- Dwell on prevaricatory material.
- Prevaricate further by making lists.
- Put lists into a spreadsheet and maybe also OneNote.
- Add pictures because that’s research, right?
- Cup of tea.
- Shift cats off the desk/keyboard/large sheet of paper and wield an instrument of some sort at one of the three.
- Make at least one image to post on Instagram because if you don’t do that, your day didn’t exist.
- Pin the list up for tomorrow and beg Zeus for an intervention.
- Went three rounds with that charcoal.
- Still struggle with the elliptical nature of round surfaces in perspective – even ones with an uneven edge like this one.
- The shell seems to have developed an eye.
- Looks better in the photograph than in reality. I don’t think I do.
In a clearly inspirational approach to tackling my problem with ellipses, I turned the pot upside down. It probably helps but I need to do a lot more pots (that’s POTS) before I’m coming close.
- Upside down seemed to give me licence to draw arcs as guides.
- Caran d’Ache doesn’t erase, smudge, or blend. Unless that’s because it’s about half a century old and a bit set in its ways. I do like being able to scratch around with it though.
- Photo is muted pinkish umberish. A lot of daylight has leaked out of the conservatory since the charcoal.
- Probably should adult this post up and put it into the course work section. Not the prevarication element, obviously.
