Rosemary (18 hours ago)
Just a doodle ..I had no idea what to draw so..drew what was in front of me! in the corridor mounted on the wall on the top floor of my house is a sealed and unused tho rather battered and faded and a tad rusty “Davy Descender” fire escape that was likely put there in the early 1930s .. no it’ll never be used!! we have more modern things now but this will stay as I just like how it looks for some reason .. the “do not hesitate it is perfectly safe” part does crack me up tho ..I’m sure jumping out of the window on a piece of string is safe lol (especially on 90 year old string!!) 😂

Wow, that really is an interesting historical piece.
I was fascinated by many things in Scotland when I visited, (way back before you were born) like using coins for electric and seems like tv
was also coin regulated. I'm sure that has all changed.
We visited many relatives in Glassgow area. They loved to sing at the local pub. Pretty good singers too!

Lol thought you’d like the name Dave
Luv2 my house is a country manor that was built as a guest lodge for a rich family who owned a big chunk of Scotland of their summer homes was the local castle house was donated to the war effort in WW2 for use as a respite hospital for soldiers and after the war it stood empty right up until me and my other half bought’s fascinating looking up the history and while it’s a lot of work restoring the massive house by ourselves (we’re keeping it all as original as possible)..we keep finding new fabulous things that keeps us going (a brick built pottery kiln in one corner of the garden and wooden rowing boats hiding under the rhododendrons were more recent finds)
I’m on the west coast of Scotland so Glasgow is just a few hours away
As to the rest .. coin electric meters were fairly common in council or rented houses at least up until I was a kid..I know the first house I rented electric was by a card meter where I paid for little £5 strips of cardboard at the post office and pushed them into a slot in the box.. tho most people pay via banks etc these days lol ..I’m no drinker so wouldn’t know about pubs 😂 it’s 4 miles to my nearest village no matter anything else so I’m not the most social lol but yes people love singing and playing music

I noticed today that yesterday (jan 22nd) was my 18th anniversary of joining this lovely site! ….I was 18 when I joined this site in 2004 and my first drawing was a self portrait so it seems only fitting I’d do another now at 36 😂 …bit of an odd angle as I was drawing this using a mirror but oh well

its wonderful Rosemary i only got you by a by a tiny bit Dec 15 2003 This was Rosemary 1/22/2004
Rosemary (edited 18 hours ago)
Elly thank you so much you are too kind xx tho I’m far from gorgeous ..windswept and interesting at best 😂

Luv2 thank you very much to the college /university I got into the habit of doing 4 30 minute and 1 60 minute sketch in my sketchbook every single day and I seem to have those times embedded in me .. it is just a sketch and it’s nowhere near as finished as I would like but I know I wont go back to this one ..I really should take the time to do a properly finished painting here sometime!

Thank you Dave..just a few weeks! I can’t imagine this site without you here! xx

.. I see my first commenters were the lovely emmamommalag and the fabulous DeadlyBlondeArcher.. I came to this site following a few others from Youdraw when it was having temporary server troubles or something like that ..I remember Dan (Axil62) posted the site name and I had to come look it up ..I’d only ever drawn on the tiny black and white youdraw drawpad before then and had never done anything digitally in colour and was in awe of the artists here ..while I cringe at my first drawings the wonderful comments here and lovely people gave me more encouragement and inspired me to study art and I’m forever grateful 😊

Did you get your degree in art?
You do such a fabulous job, and Elly is right, you are beautiful with fabulous hair.
Enjoy that age you are in, mid to late thirties are such a wonderful time for most women.
I loved it. lol

Back in my comfort zone drawing things like this ..just a doodle while listening to music ..not as good as as like and it’s difficult drawing and building lego with my 8 year old at the same time 😂 but I’m happy to have got the need to sketch this out of my system for now

Sometimes the quick draws are as good or even better than some we work ours on, like this one!! I love the added hatch marks in the background and all the textures. Nice piece my friend!

I looked at your DeviantArt board again and I'm so impressed how well you did some of your portraits, Like Bella, Marc Bolan, and Nalle Colt.
Henry Moore sculpture is awesome too. Hoody is done so well, but not a pet for me, lol.
OHMSS, wow, Clint wow, you certainly are very talented! ツ

Well you totally captured the look of a card! Do you illustrate books or anything?
