Well, better late than never! I wasn’t thinking of joining in WOYWW this week because there’s nothing on my desk to show, and I’m feeling rough in week 1 of my 6th cycle of chemo.
However, the other day I downloaded a free pdf taster for an adult colouring book and today I decided to try my new Sharpies and colour it in. My hubby kindly printed it out for me on his laser printer.
This is more WOYSRT (What’s On Your Sitting Room Table) than WOYWW this week lol!
Here is the original printed drawing.
Colouring in the fish.
Colouring in the water.
Forgot to photograph any further intermediate stages, but here is the finished picture. I coloured the waterlily leaves with different shades of green, and added a touch of pink to the flowers. The final touch was to colour in the edges of the background with grey, shaded to black at the edges, and to add a tiny touch of shading here and there.
Quite fun, eh? Hope you like it.
I know that we on WOYWW have all been thinking a lot about Shaz this past week. She went into hospital a week ago today for major surgery, and has been having a tough time since. Just in case you don’t get to see the link elsewhere (I know that Jan – LLJ – has posted it, and she has very kindly emailed me with some updates over the past couple of days), Shaz’s hubby has started a blog about her journey, so that we can follow her progress.
We are thinking of them both so much at this difficult time, and wish Shaz a very speedy recovery, but it is going to be a long stay in hospital. We send our support to her hubby too – it is so hard for them as they feel so helpless, watching what is happening and feeling powerless to do anything, but as I told my hubby today, just the fact of their being there and being supportive and loving is enough. Shaz and I are both so fortunate in our hubbies – they are cast in the same mould, and have wanted to be fully involved and supportive throughout our respective cancer journeys. I count myself very fortunate that my journey has not been as arduous as Shaz’s, and I can never forget the amazing support she has been throughout this year, as she has trod much of my path before and has shared the wisdom of her experience. Get well soon, dear friend!!
Happy WOYWW everybody.
