Here are some sketches I make with different lead and coloured pencils in the evenings, when I just sit and play with ideas and see where they lead – if anywhere. Just ‘muckin’abart’ really!
Later, I tried timing myself to see what happened if I didn’t get stuck in detail
This ten minute sketch stretched to twenty minutes……
For some reason I spent an hour playing around with perky birds…
I’m not particularly good at birds and animals – but these were good enough to make me have a shot at Siddy last night – he doesn’t stay still long enough for me to get it really right – but I’ll keep going………
Someone else inspired me to play with modern day flower fairies….. the circled bits indicate I like that idea and want to take it further…….
I really like this one, the one that I’ve coloured – but she hasn’t gone any further yet:
While the page was a bit of a wash out – hence the lake and swans appearing – the fairy herself is great fun. I like a fairy with attitude!
It’s coming along. I’ve got several art journal pages to show you next time – I feel like I’m getting near ready to start work on canvas again…….
Thanks for coming by today, I love that you did!
