Ow! Ow! Ow!

I’ve done a lot of walking today, trying to find something to sketch but I was so distracted by the pain from the hideous gnatbites over my legs that I couldn’t find anything that sparked me enough to stop and draw. So I went home, sat down and drew my painful pustules. I’m trying not to take any antihistamines until bedtime because they zonk me out in the day.

I’ve drawn this in my A5 pink silk sari recycled sketchbook with Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens sizes S, F and B in sepia with Vermilion and Deep Red Winsor & Newton Drawing Inks applied with a sable brush. I’ve tried to express the pain by using quite jagged mark-making.

Now I’ve done my blog, I can take the medication zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Time at allotments is hazardous to one’s health! The red ink really makes it look really horrible. I know your pain having been there myself. Good luck keeping the itch down. 🙂

      Thanks. It’s a bit better today. Husb got me some antihistamine ointment, much better than medicine 🙂

        That was a good idea. Hope you picked up some herbal spray to keep the bugs away too! 🙂

    let’s hope those bites go soon.. catch the good moments and enjoy.
    Feet – love the drawing and can sympathize with bad feet as mine hurt at the moment and I do so enjoy walking.
    Look forward to your next drawing
