There’s much I’m investigating and experimenting with lately. Lots of mixed media work on paper, and little on canvas, and in between it all some work on the iPad - good fun! It’s wonderful to have some work on the go, and ideas percolating, awaiting a brush or pen. And so exciting when they get... Continue Reading →
Watercolour, ink pen, and a little art app media. Available here. Enjoyed doing this flower series... may start another one. Enjoy your weekend!
Ink pen, Inktense block washes, some pencil work, and gouache - on A4 Quill Kraft paper. I’ve also printed this picture in pigment ink, with my inkjet printer, on A3 Canson 220gsm paper.

I also did a copy of it on paper, using a “Uni-ball”, and “Artline Calligraphy” ink pen. Another... Continue Reading →

It’s not so much the drawing and painting daily (as most days I usually do some kind of art) as the posting online in various... Continue Reading →
A beautiful bunch of Hakea leaves were given to me by a friend; she thought I’d enjoy drawing them. So true! They have a similiar elegance to the gum leaves I recently drew. For this very quick sketch I used an Artline pen. I love how the ink lines travel in unexpected ways when I add... Continue Reading →
