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 →
Ink pen, Inktense block washes, some pencil work, and gouache - on A4 Quill Kraft paper. Available here. I’ve also printed this picture in pigment ink, with my inkjet printer, on A3 Canson 220gsm paper. And applied some coloured pencil to it. Thoroughly enjoyed Inktober, and the opportunity to use lots of line work. Not that... Continue Reading →

Another one for my flower series. A while back, I painted this in an app called, “Art Rage”. I’ve printed it onto a lovely %100 cotton paper, and added it to my art I have for sale in my local area. I have some small art prints, and may eventually add a few small pencil... Continue Reading →
Freehand drawn - with my finger - on the iPad. I used a brown paper surface, and: paint, pencil and smudge tools, in the Art Set Pro app. Have a great weekend!
