This is where I've been hiding all week - in this drawing. Do you know what ties all the objects, on the shelves, together? If you want to know, find out HERE.

Ditto what they said. I recognized several of the items right away. The only part I don't like is waiting for the next one from you.

Thank you all folks. It took a very long time. One day I'll do a quick drawing, but I just like getting lost in something. And, this was certainly a drawing to get lost in.

Susan, it's A4 in size.

Cheers. I really appreciate your visits and comments.

Ahhh...finally a riddle that was easy for me to figure out! It was so nice looking over your bookshelf and reminiscing about all the beautiful drawings that have filled it. Lovely, lovely drawing. Definitely worth the wait!

What's the size of the original? is A4= 8 x 10? I think this (or something similar) would make an amazing poster/print.) You and Mr. Roget are using your talents VERY well. BRAVA!

I began to list the ones I recognised and then I said: "Oh, sod it! Just enjoy!"
And I did, Very much.

PS Sometimes, answering your quiz is easier than reading the word verification!!!!!

Blogger Peceli and Wendy's Blog said...

Everyone's said it - you are amazing! What do you do with your drawings? Sell them one by one or as a series? Put up an exhibition, make a coffee table book?
You teach us a lot about patience.

Blogger andrea joseph's sketchblog said...

Thank you guys.

KnititngPainterWoman,A4 is approximately 11.5"x8" or 30cmx21cm. This drawing fills the page, apart from a small border.

Wendy, right now I am building a portfolio with my work. A lot of it is in Moleskine sketchbooks, though.

Thanks for the enquiries and kind words. Cheers.

I've just recently stumbled upon your blog & am already an avid fan of your work. Your style is beyond...totally A-mazing. I've noticed you make several of your sketches with a tag that says "ink, sepia". What kind of pen or ink are you using for these drawings? I love the color

Genine, I have no idea. Just made it up as I went along.
