Three Male Nudes

Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop. It’s late now and I’m tired. I did three versions of the same pose in an hour. The first, a straightforward scribbly line with a Faber Castell Pitt drawing pen, size F, into a Daler Rowney A3 cartridge sketchpad.

Then I did another line drawing and worked into it with Winsor & Newton artist quality half pan watercolours. I used very stiff sable brushes with a choppy style.

And finally, in the last few minutes, I tried drawing directly with brushes, water and water colour.

And now, goodnight 😀

I Love My Bed

8 Jan

08 ming

Horrible weather this morning, very dark and pouring with rain and I really didn’t want to get up. Husb kept nagging me but I was grasping at any excuse to stay put – soooo cosy. Little Ming jumped onto the bed and padded around to make herself comfy so I grabbed my little watercolour pad and a pencil I keep on the shelf next to the pillow and started scribbling. So everytime Husb shouted up the stairs to get up, I shouted back, “I’m doing my Art!”. Yeah, horizontally, under the duvet, in the warm – what a job, eh? 😀

Had to get up eventually though and spent the day working on a new drawing in a cold, dark, grey studio. Can’t wait to get back to bed.
