We’re moving house this week! That means a lot of boxes, a lot of furniture shuffling, a lot of cleaning and not much drawing!
I think we’re just about ready though and in a state of organised chaos for one more day until we get the keys on Tuesday.
It’s very exciting moving into the first home we’ve ever owned together (besides a tent several years ago…). There are a lot of decisions to make – very important ones of course…
Shall we do the decorating immediately or wait until we’ve been there a while to get a feel for what we’d like? Where should we put the fish tank – in the kitchen or in the lounge? Should the little spare room be the study or the big one? Where can my enormous art desk go (sore subject…I want it in the lounge!)? Where can Sam’s DJ decks live? How many boxes do we think can fit in the car? Is the oven in the rented house clean enough (I should hope so after two hours scrubbing!)?
I’m hoping most of the answers will become clear over the next few days!
I’ve just squeezed in an hour to draw a miniature portrait of Colin Firth, in between oven cleaning, hanging washing out, dismantling a table and wondering what to have for tea!
It wasn’t until the very end of this drawing that it started to look like him and I’m still not sure he looks quite right! The background of the reference photo was very dark and his hair blended in so it was hard to see where it ended.
For the first time in a couple of years, there may not be a blog post from me next week! The internet man is coming on 21st to connect us up, so I probably won’t be able to upload one before then.
See you on the other side!!
