Flock of birds

I saw a large flock of birds today and wanted to try and capture it simply.

I’m getting my things ready tonight for a long run tomorrow, and felt inspired to draw a rucksack and practice with the “Paint” programme on my laptop

Cat and mole

I was amused to see this cat watching a mole in the garden this afternoon. It seemed perfectly happy just to watch, no attempt to attack or interact!

Elegant welly

I’ve added the pattern to my welly – enough to brighten any winter’s day! I’ve also given it some mud to step in!

I bought some wellies today. They’re quite elegant and I’ll paint the design tomorrow. But even sketching the outline tonight, made me think how it’s a simple object but with some elegant lines.

Slouching seagulls

I think seagulls make great subjects. I tried sketching this one a second time as I hadn’t quite captured his hunch/ slouch the first time round.

Pencil cat

I enjoyed just sketching in pencil and getting messy and smudgy. Mogwai always makes a great subject (today on some clean washing!)

Pink carnations

I wanted to experiment capturing these in different techniques. I like the ones where I drew pen first.

Red wine

It’s pretty cold at the moment, so glasses of red wine have been going down well!  It’s one of those beautiful, but hard to capture, subjects, so I thought I’d practice.
