I Sketched a Blogger Nude

I accepted a challenge to sketch a fellow blogger (The V Pub – Friends without Borders) based on one of his recent posts. The photo I was based on is one of the four photos. There are other bloggers sketched or painted based on the other three photos. So I took the challenge to sketch the one which has not been worked on.

Visual art is not my thing due to lack of training, skill or practice. I love colouring which is like therapy for me. So I consulted my painter friend. She gave me some tips on how to sketch facial features. I also asked her for some tips on sketching the penis. My ten year old overheard my video call with my friend. He came running in right after I shut off the video call. He enthusiastically demonstrated on paper how to draw a penis. I guess he practiced that at school fair a bit. Boys!

• Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you and link back to their blog.

• Answer questions the blogger asked you.

• List the suggestions and display the Sunshine Blogger Award in your blog post.

  7. Do you ask enough questions or do you settle for what you know? I am not asking enough questions because I do not like to be swayed by other’s opinions.

Calling for collaboration

Hi to my followers and occasionally stop-by readers!

I am calling for writing poetry in collaboration with You.

A bit of background of myself. I love writing poetry though I received no formal training in doing so, nor have I well read classic English poetry. So I write fairly free form for lack of knowledge. I believe poetry is a great way to express an individual’s creativity.

If you are interested in writing collaboration pieces with me, please email me here, we can discuss topics and a way forward.

Looking forward to hearing from you! 😊
