This Blog Is Changing


It’s been a while since my last post. The school holidays are always a busy time for me, and they go by so quickly that I like to spend as many moments with the family as I can.We spent a few days at the seaside. It was a relaxing time and it provided me with an opportunity to mull over a few things.

I hope all my readers are keeping well and I hope you’ll bear with me until the end of this post.

There’s not that much to get through,  but I guess I’d better get on with it.

Still Lovin' The Line

It's been a fairly busy few weeks since my last post. I've been feeling a bit under the weather and then there's all the family 'stuff' which does overtake everything. But I've been doing my best to carry on drawing and I find myself more and more drawn (no pun intended), to line. I love what you can do with line and I find that laying down line after line is extremely meditative. I promise I'll get posting on here more regularly and I'll be commenting on all the blogs I usually visit, too. Until I do here's some of the work I've completed since my last post. Hope you like them.   

Have a great weekend and a super PPF.

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.
