Day 2: Sleepless Scribbles

2 Feb



Wide awake at 4 in the morning and I reached for my Samsung Galaxy Tablet for a scribble. I’ve had insomnia since my teens and have tried everything except sleeping pills, but it isn’t too bad these days and I can usually get back to sleep within the hour. Normally I draw from life, but lying in bed this morning I just scribbled randomly and this is what came out. I think it’s a fallen angel and souls in hell. Cheerful eh? 😀

I’m going to post it onto  28 Drawings Later, the February daily drawing challenge on Facebook.


Big Foot

natie 2Another of the life drawings I did earlier this week, this one is in Windor & Newton oilbars and conte crayon onto an A3 size primed canvas sheet. I was trying out different media in each pose, to stretch myself and push out of my comfort zone. I had pre-coloured this sheet with Rhodamine Red oil pigment and left it to dry before using it.

I’m pleased with the way it’s turned out, particularly the foot in the foreground, not at all easy to do.
