That is somehow like I feel at the moment. I can't find the patience to do my usual colour pencils that take so much time and control. Whereas I sense such an impatience and restlessness that I have to work quicker or physically (I've been cutting boxwood spheres all day yesterday, though this was not exactly spontaneous either).
So this time I did a very quick watercolour which took me only a tiny fraction of the time I usually need for such an illustration.

What I really wanted to show was the dynamic movement of sweeping. In the end I thought of this little paper ship that's swept into the drain of a bath tub.
By the way, I just saw 'Billy Elliot' and I was clearly swept by the colour scheme of set and costumes: such vibrant shades of blue, green and red, contrasting the drab environment the film is taking place in.

Peter Schlemihl who sold his shadow for a bag of gold to the devil. To make his lack of a shadow visible, I drew things with a strong shadow. I hope that my intention shows in the illustration.
In the above illustration I want to show a cereal grain where the germ is still asleep. I also tried out a different technique from my usual colour pencils.
Of course the illustration for the approriate topic 'shadows' is on its way. I hope to publish it tomorrow at the latest.
