Time Flys When You Are Doodling

My word, the weeks are flying by. Hard to believe that we are almost half-way through this year. The more I create, the quicker the days seem to pass.

I've been drawing steadily and I've become somewhat obsessed with lines. I've drew loads of them and regularly come up with stuff like this. It's great fun and, at the same time, very meditative to just lay down line after line.


 

I've also been experimenting with colour. I do love using my Pitt Artist Pens. The ink flows onto the page so smoothly; so different to all the pens I've tried previously. 

I drew the image below, more lines, added colour with my pens then overlaid the scanned image with my photo editing software. I lifted off some of the overlay to let the original colour show through. I like the result a lot. I think it works really well. 




Have a great weekend and a super PPF. 

Why not pop over to Instagram to see all my latest work.

Doodling Crazy

I've been neglecting my blog somewhat. I've noticed the more I draw, the less time I seem to be able to devote to blogging. But I've still been busy. I've been doing lots of drawing, the good weather has encouraged me to get my camera out and I've also joined Instagram. There's a great community of artists over there and I'm enjoying the experience very much. 

However, I do feel I also need to spend some time here as well. I enjoy blogging and I like showing off some of my latest pieces. I hope you like them.

Spirals

I've been so busy with 'life stuff' lately that I haven't had time to post on this site. But here's something I put together today.

Ink-Spill Doodle

I thought I'd try something a little bit different. 

Spill some ink, flick it around a bit, add some doodles. Simple.



 Have a great PPF, a super weekend and wishing Paint Party Friday a very happy 7th birthday.

Doodle in Watercolour



Watercolour has always been a favourite of mine. I love the way it blends on paper and the unpredictable nature it tends to have. Sometimes you just have to accept that you don’t always get what you want and just go with what you get.


Watercolour doesn’t work well on sketchbook paper, but it’s nice to add a bit of variety to one’s drawings. A touch of colour adds a bit of spice to a sketchbook, so I decided to flood a page with a little Permanent Rose and some Cerulean Blue then draw some shapes on top.


Here’s the result. I think it works well. I like the overall effect.




 Have a great weekend and a super PPF.
