Bubbles and stripes!

Another drawing of my discus thrower combined with the circles to suggest movement but ended up looking as if he was having a bubble bath! Back to simplicity and I was pleased to remember that our very own 21st century disc is a CD. So a rubbing in the brown paper sketchbook which decided me that the stripey effect of the paper was not good in this situation so made another rubbing on plain paper.


  1. Great idea to use a CD as a rubbing, I like the brown paper one it shows up the ridges well and the outside edges look a bit like clouds.

    1. Thanks for your thoughts Sharon - helps put a different perspective. I thought I could also try turning the drawing at an angle so the stripes were diagonal, suggesting a bit more movement perhaps. Sian

  2. I wouldn't have thought that something with such a smooth surface would give such good results. I like the rubbing on the brown paper - the shading makes it look like it is floating on the page.

  3. As the Adidas slogan states, Yamaha Fairings
    nothing is impossible. Every brand has the chance of ranking to be the most recognized brand sneakers shoes.Onitsuka Tiger Shoes
    Furthermore, sneakers shoes can be categorized into three main subcategories. That is Athletic sneaker shoes, Onitsuka Tiger Shoes
    casual sneaker shoes and fitness sneakers. More specially, based on the variety of different sports, athletic sneakers Monster Headphones consist of baseball sneakers, basketball sneakers, tennis sneakers, football sneakers, soccer sneakers and hiking shoes.

  4. My daughter and I when to Doll House to buy a Sherri Lee dress that my daughter was obsessed with. I received no service from the sales staff until I asked. They gave my daughter a few styles to try on when asked what size my daughter would be, she pointed at the dress my daughter had on and said “that size”. I noticed that the dresses had no size tags on them and when I asked the sales staff about that, they got frustrated with me and gave no explanation. So I left the store with a much deflated daughter, went home and ordered the dress online and saved $200.
