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.

Drawing Practice?

The more I draw and doodle, the more questions I get asked. One query that keeps popping up in the course of conversation is, "How often do you practice drawing?" 

Most people seem a bit surprised when I answer. But the truth is, I don't practice, I just draw, and draw and draw. I don't know if that counts as practice or not, but that's what I do.

Paint Party Friday - Going Big

Where did that week go? 

Is it really Friday already?

This week has flown by. It is true what they say; time does go  quicker the older one gets. It doesn't seem like it was seven days ago that I was posting for PPF.  

I finished my daily doodle challenge almost with a sigh of relief. Doing the artwork was not a problem, but blogging every day does encroach on time that could be spent getting more drawing completed. 

I was getting a bit bored drawing in my smallish sketch books, so I decided to jump in and try something a bit bigger. The drawing below is on an A3 sketchbook I found sitting on a shelf. I found that working in this bigger format allowed me to be more expressive with my line work. 

Hope you like it.

Have a great PPF and a super weekend.
