Justifying my galaxy tab- girl playing a violin

  My kindle died about a month ago and I did not want to buy another one and be so restricted and decided I had a wealth of paper back novels and that could last me a long long time. That turned out to be 3 weeks max, after which I broke into my piggy bank and went to town to buy a small  tablet.  One of the justification I gave to myself was that I would be able to work easier away from home when doing "mum things" :) So after downloading a number of programs ( yup I can't just get one), and getting a bamboo stylus ( finger painting was just not doing it for me), I finally used the free sketchbook pro to draw something today.  Now I just have to see if I can do something similar on my paid for art programs or if I have to upgrade the free one :) Linking to Sunday Sketches.

passing time

As I tried to climb over a fence today to get to the other side, my foot slipped on the light snow covering and I slammed one of my fingers into a cement sewage pipe that was resting near by. Boy does it hurt. Luckily it is on the left hand and not the right but it is rather painful after 2hours and interfering with work so I have decided I will just pass time today :~ 
Below is a little fairy I was working on. Yup she has funk legs LOL I should have put a hint of a knee but it was interfering with the line I wanted LOL

Entered this into a competition - a tad bit dark lol but it was a fun exercise to do.

Had hoped to add something specific for SS but with the finger still swollen and coming down with a cold yesterday this is it. Hope everyone is well  and join our friends at Sunday Sketches.

WIP - cupcake

Doing a course on colouring at SVS online school and decided to try and get my shadows and values (if that is the right word)  organised after I watched a lesson. This is still in progress, and I still need to add shadows and values but I am pretty pleased with the progress even though the cupcake wrapper is not as yet right. I hope the next lesson deals with some colour :)
