Face Across A Room – 4.

Here’s another quick sketch when I was out and about. This time, I tried scribbling someone who was talking. It’s good practice as I have to cope with a face in constant motion. I used a ballpoint pen into my A5 leather-bound sketchbook. Raising Funds. My family is raising money for Phil, a younger relativeContinue reading “Face Across A Room – 4.”

Face Across A Room 3.

Another interesting face scribbled across a bar on Friday night, with a ballpoint pen into my A5 sketchbook. I love doing this, capturing these little still moments in people’s lives. Does that make me a voyeur? Raising Funds. My family is raising money for Phil, a younger relative of mine, to have life-changing surgery inContinue reading “Face Across A Room 3.”

Face Across A Room 1.

I went to a quiz night at the Jam Jar bar the other evening. It was the first time I’ve done a digital quiz – it was hilarious. Of course, I had to have a scribble. I saw a very striking looking young woman across the bar, in a rival team , and sketched herContinue reading “Face Across A Room 1.”

A Quickie Down The Pub.

Popped into our local pub, The Brunswick Inn, for a couple of hours a few evenings ago with some family, listening to the acoustic live music and just chatting, like things were before Covid19. Of course I had a quick scribble …… A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks I have some small screenprintsContinue reading “A Quickie Down The Pub.”

A Walk To Sgwd Gwladys

Husb and I went for a walk in this afternoon’s sunshine to Sgwd Gwladys (Lady Falls), a waterfall on the Afon (River) Pyrddin. We stopped on the path so I could quickly sketch the view across the river to a mine entrance, partially overgrown, with Rembrandt pastels onto Khadi paper. Sgwd Gwladys is one ofContinue reading “A Walk To Sgwd Gwladys”

Watching And Scribbling.

Husb and I went out to a gig last night, a local venue to see a local musician and poet, Jack Jones of the band Trampolene, doing a solo acoustic gig. It was great, really lively. Of course, I had to have a scribble. A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks I have someContinue reading “Watching And Scribbling.”

Catching Up

Today I hung out with my young niece. Her phone charger broke last night so we went into the city to get a new one. When we got home, she had to catch up with the world which gave me a chance to sketch her on the settee, having an extended sesh on social media.Continue reading “Catching Up”

Prepping

After doing so much painting during the pandemic lockdown, with the irrepressible Ed Sumner of the Cheese and Wine Painting Club, I decided I’d do more painting this year, but self- generated ones, portraits of friends and family. So I’m making a start with Husb. My first step is to do preparatory sketches, to getContinue reading “Prepping”
