Weeding And A Male Nude

6 Sep


After one of the wettest summers on record, we’ve had a couple of dry sunny days, so Husb and I were off to the allotment which needed a lot of work after a month of rain. I had a huge amount of weeding facing me, everything has grown huge including the weeds. I did loads of digging and now I’m suffering.


Here’s the last of the life drawings I did a couple of evenings ago at Swansea Print Workshop using a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and a free Markers app. I’ve saved the drawing periodically so it can be put into a slideshow of the different stages.

Why Is The Ocean Green?

25 Aug

Because the sea weed. [GROAN] That’s what happens when I spend a couple of days with small nephews.


A traditional rainy bank holiday in Britain again. It’s been tipping down all day but cleared up a bit this evening so Husb and I headed down to the beach; he ran 7k along the promenade and I worked out on the free gym equipment.

The tide was fully in and just a few feet from the edge of the prom, so I wandered down and dipped my toes. And drew them. It’s hard finding marks to protray the sea, especially when you just have a fine pen, but I did my best. The sea weed sloshed over my toes. It tickled.

Drawn with a Faber Castell Pitt drawing pen, size S, into my little A6 spotty sketchbook.

Quick Exercise

23 Sep


I had the Tablet to hand this morning while Husb was doing his exercises so I did a quick scribble. It’s a real challenge to draw someone who’s moving fast,you have to concentrate on the general outline and main features,there’s no time to get any details down. It becomes a bit of a mass of scribbles but that’s keeping true to the process.
