May 8, 2009 | 2 Comments

Here is my page that I did last night at my favourite tearoom. I didn’t quite finish the painting as they closed their doors and I thought I better leave. So I added the rest of the paint tonight. Yet again, a different pot, cup and saucer from last visit. The pot on the left...

A light bulb moment last night when I had to hide a woman’s profile with the floating lemon tart… This page is a bit of an exaggeration but I think it is a trap that I have been finding myself fall into.Also, I realised last night trying to do work in two journals at the...

Anita was certain, that after my resolution to only do one spread per day, I would still do two today! Well, she was right… and wrong. I did 3!! (In fact there is another 3/4 completed sketch in my daily sketchbook of the cup, saucer and pots from tonight’s cuppa after late night shopping!… as...

Jack Hamm has another 2 pages on noses!!! (obviously it is the most important feature!) But I am having a break from drawing them and just enjoying looking at all the wonderful specimens in Rick Tulka’s book which arrived yesterday. The stress from yesterday was mainly due to work… So today at lunch I turned...

I was flat out today- no lunch break and 3 back to back meetings. However, after last nights inspiration, I found myself naturally observing the noses around the table.

Shopping this morning and an opportunity to sketch some people…but first to get me in the mood… coffee and cake. I do think that drawing a cup or two before I attempt to draw people does help me loosen up.So here are my efforts from this morning…I was in a rather open area so not...

090501 Friday Night Traffic

May 1, 2009 | 1 Comment

Haven’t had the opportunity to do one of these for a while now… this means that I have been driving home after the peak hour and not that the traffic has been good! It will soon be too dark for me to see what I am doing… but I don’t suppose that will stop me!
