Letting Loose

I've been getting a bit carried away on the creative front these past few days. At the weekend I don't get as much time as I'd like to get out my sketchbook and pens, but here's something I put together last night while the rest of the family were glued to the television screen. You'll have to excuse the quality of the second image. I used my scanner, which really has seen better days. I need to get a new one, but that'll have to wait till after Christmas. I like to spoil everyone as much as I can at the festive season, especially my daughter, so funds will be a bit low until it's all over.

Anyway, here's the latest drawing from my sketchbook. I think the images look better if you click on them.

Strange Places.

Paint Party Friday - Shoe Sketches

I've been a bit busy this week, so I thought I'd post these sketches of one of my shoes. I like drawing with pen. I think the contrast of black ink against white paper is quite striking.

Paint Party Friday - Sunset Over The City

I've been doing a lot of pencil drawing this week. Sometimes I think it's good to get back to basics and just sit down with a sketchbook and and a few pencils.  I've decided to post this small, colourful drawing I did a few weeks ago while the rest of the family were watching television. I find very little to interest me on television, so I usually take up position in my favourite armchair with a few pens and some watercolour pencils. It's much more fulfilling to create something in the evening instead of watching the soaps or the latest 'reality' television show. I really don't see the point. 

Anyway, here's my post for PPF. Hope you like it.
