So, a while back I said I was going to try and develop my artistic side a little more (which also falls into the category of doing things a bit differently to normal – see last blog), and over the holidays I had the perfect opportunity. Be gentle, I know these items are not exactly masterpieces, but perhaps over the next few months this blog might track some traces of improvements?! Anyway, it was fun, and I learned a lot (such as that oils take such a LONG time to dry that the smudge-risk-factor is off the scale, and never put your drink next to the cup with meths in).
You can probably see I love fineliners, and swirls/patterns are definitely a theme. In fact, the swirls now look to me so much like hair that that may be the subject of any next little drawing!
I’ve also taken an unnecessarily large number of photos, but I just enjoy playing about with the different angles and lights (and seeing how much better these things can make my work look than it actually is!!) So here you are.
