Week three already! Here’s the round up of the past week’s drawings. As always, some that were fun, some that did not work out as hoped. It’s interesting to observe the ebb and flow of my enthusiasm. It doesn’t seem to be as related to the prompts as one might assume. With a bit of percolating I can usually come up with an interesting angle, even if it doesn’t always translate to the page as I’d hoped.


Skyline :: ink and feather, brush and water {the view from my studio porthole}


Favourite line from a favourite poem :: Shelley’s ‘Ozymandias’ in its entirety, ink, feather, watercolour pencils


Magnified :: an Imaginary Thing, magnified. Black Pitt pen and Promarkers


Animal :: Frederick, of the wondrous eyelashes. Ink, feather and watercolour pencils.


Inspired by…. :: artist Rachelle Krieger. Soft pastels.


Negative Space :: my lemon plant {grown from pips!}, and a quote from Anne Lamott, black Letraset pen.


Simplicity :: harder than it seems! This was my second attempt; paper, pen and blind contour drawing. Simple and fun.
