Still finding it rather difficult to get myself down to any demanding drawing or painting - using spare energy to help Dev with necessary home jobs as much as I can.
So this is rather a lazy blogpost. I thought I would post some images from my sketchbooks. You may find the subject matter of most of them a little weird - but I like weird.
This was done at a portrait class where I liked to experiment with different ways of tackling the subject, and this is what I call a scribble drawing. It's one of my favourites.
Now for something a little more off-beat. I am really interested in ancient Egyptian art and artefacts, and this was drawn from a photograph - I didn't meet the gentleman in person. I often think it's a shame that they weren't left in peace in their tombs as they wished. Still, as long they are written about or drawn, they are remembered.
I find skulls interesting - we once had a sheep's skull that we found on a country walk, and oh! how I wish I had it to draw today.
For some reason this fellow looked happy, even though I he's only a plastic model, and I felt impelled to call him 'The Jolly Miller'.
I love playing about on Photoshop with my drawings or photographs, and this is an 'Andy Warhol' version:
Not a very good scan, for which I apologise. And to finish, just a painting doodle. I had done some wax painting and experimented with transferring some of the images onto water-colour paper. This one came out as just grey blotches, but with a bit of work with my Inktense pencils this is the resulting doodle - Elephant Rears.
