Day 52 and re-hashing

Flowers again, this time in coloured pen and from different angle with the freesias fully opened. Not feeling the love today, I have a headache so that doesn’t help, and just a general lack of inspiration. Must have been spoilt in those Monday workshops….


Day 48 and jugs

Well, one jug, and a very pretty blue one I picked up in Ewenny earlier this year. I filled it with yellow roses and purple freesia bought yesterday that are now starting to open up nicely.

More work with negative space and overlaying lines in colours, this time with my beloved conté crayons. I’d use them more out of the house, if it weren’t for the messy fingers and need for fixative every time you use them.

Still not much good at the flora, but I think you get the idea. Oh, and I’m advised that Llaeth is Welsh for cream. I’m really hoping that is true….

Day 11 and disappointment

I was ready to throw in the towel today. Was this it? Could I only make it 11 days and be defeated by [insert preferred profanity here] architecture? I desperately wanted to give up this afternoon. After all, why bother when I cannot draw a building to save my life. Trust me, those pages in my sketchbook will be seen by no-one. EVER.

Have a conker husk/chestnut leaf instead:

It’s executed in four colours of Tombow ABT pens. Not that its that good a husk/leaf but its a huge improvement on my river scene. Tomorrow may be back to people.
