RIP Trish Keenan

I only heard the terrible news today, Trish Keenan died on 14 January from complications with pneumonia.

Colour Me In

I am grey, still on the page
Oh colour me in
Just an outline, sketchy but fine
Oh colour me in

If green is chasing the hills over miles
If blue is pursuing the sky
If the red of your heart doesn't mind
Where to begin to colour me in

Something new and nothing to do
I'm just the idea
I must be real cause somehow I feel
That I'm just the idea

Let's share the blue of the towering sky
The green of the hills that run by
Leave the red of your heart to decide
If you cannot choose which colour to use

I'll always wait, it's never too late
To colour me in
To colour me in

Today or next year
I'll always be near
if you want to colour me in

Painting-Course drawing 1

I haven't updated this in a while. Well, I've decided to follow the lessons at, and part of the lesson plan is to post your work in a blog (if possible). I already had this blog, so that was convenient.
My goal is to improve my drawing skills and learn to paint, the lessons at seem an excellent way to accomplish this, and the structure of the lesson plan is excellent for a chaotic procrastinator like me.

Here's the first drawing of the course, a still life of a small object. I chose a ThreeA WWRp Square action figure to start.
