Sniffles And Sweets

16 Sep

I am such a wimp. I’ve got a cold and I’ve retreated to my settee with a blanket, aspirin and a big bag of sweets – Gummy Bears, my favourites (I rarely eat sweets except when I’m not well). I can’t work up the motivation to do any art while I’m wallowing in sniffly misery so I’m looking back through my archives of digital drawings to start putting them in order.

This is a group of drawings I did from photos of foxes a few years back when I first had my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet, using a free app called Markers.

 

 

More Quick Kitty Scribbles……

Still have a rotten cold, sucking on throat sweets and still don’t feel like doing much art so here’s another kitty scribble, done quickly on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet using a free app called Markers. It’s a basic app but that’s what I want, I prefer to focus on doing the drawing rather than playing with the bells and whistles of an expensive and expansive art app. You have to put in a background before doing the drawing or it all goes a bit skewiff but apart from that, it’s a pretty good app.

 

 

A lot of my artwork is available on my Artfinder gallery.  If you’d like to have a look, please click on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page.

Quickies In The Sun

5 Aug

3 quickies in the sun

A dry and sunny day in August is as rare as hen’s teeth in these here parts so despite smothering with a cold and sore throat, Husb and I put on our jackets and drove down to Southgate on the Gower Peninsula for a couple of hours. I sat in the sunshine on the clifftop and did some quick and tiny watercolour studies, en plein air, using Winsor & Newton half pans onto a rough Saunders Waterford watercolour paper (300 gsm) from St. Cuthbert’s Mill which comes as a glued block. I haven’t used glued paper before and it’s brilliant, no need to stretch the paper before use. I tried to ignore the detail of what I saw before me and concentrate on getting down the colours while Husb picked blackberries. He’s in the kitchen now, getting this year’s Bramble Jelly started. mmmmmmmm 😀

 

Sprawling Teenager

4 Aug

teenager

Our great nephew is having a sleepover and is sprawled out in typical teenager style on his own settee with his mobile in his hand. He’s been scribbled.

Husb and I went to see the outdoor 20th anniversary screening of the cult film Twin Town last night. It rained. Today I have a heavy cold and sore throat and can hardly speak. But it was worth it.
