A Quiet Day at my desk

It’s been a quiet day today, because I have been feeling very down. I don’t think the dreary and damp weather helped, nor did the larger-than-usual credit card bill.

Still, I have been fiddling about with Corel Painter again. I wish I could draw properly. I sketch, doodle, but can’t claim to any real skill in the art. I get by, I guess. At least Painter lets me undo if I ruin something! I think I expect too much of myself and the software, really.

Both these images are based on my original photos. On the rusty link image, I cloned in some of the photo to give me back a bit of the pitted metal texture. They’re no Da Vinci or Rembrandt, but it helped me keep my head clear during a tough old day.
