Inktober

Day 1 Using Midori as my sketchbook. The paper is great for most media and I carry it with me everywhere as it’s my diary – so no excuse not to do at least one drawing a day! Day 2 My favourite field – part trees, part grass, part freshly tilled earth.

Referendum

Couldn’t stand the tension last night so did some doodling to try and take my mind off it all. Only to wake up to the Out vote….what a miserable day.

Computers!

He’s frustrated by trying to set up email in an old computer!

Twingling Twingley

Any of you out there know the work of Jonathan Twingley? I’m in need of new ideas and insights so decided to take an online klass at Sketchbook Skool. Mr Twingley is one of the fakulty and his klass is an absolute hoot – totally liberating – would highly recommend this for anyone feeling stuck…

Lemsip

Struggling with flu. Thankfully a full box of Lemsip is to hand!

2016

Not the first sketch of the year, but one I quite like of the man taking it quietly after New Years Eve. Trying out the sketchbook paper in Midori Traveler’s Notebook. Have to say it is absolutely superb for pen, brush pens, colour pencil and watercolour.  Lovely to work on.

Drawing people

It’s a challenge for sure, but I keep trying. Experimented with a white pen, pentel brush pen and toned paper to try and find a way of drawing lots of people in the distance! I’m finding the more I try to make them not look like people, the more they sort of look like people!
