After dinner portrait

I seized a short space of free time and did a quick watercolor portrait. Note to self - use a  HB pencil next time instead of a 2B!


300 gsm Archers watercolour paper, A5 size. Daniel Smith watercolours from my amazing penpal Kerrie-ann.

Plan for textile work


Currently working on a textile mark-making piece. Doing a plan on paper for the left hand picture. Not sure whether this will work out the way I am envisaging in my head...

Some more portraits

I'm finding it hard to get time to draw at all for months now. So, with much effort, I'm just trying to draw anything whenever I get a moment.







Some quick straight watercolor sketches.



And finally, a bit of mail art.

Some quick sketches

I'm so out of practice sketching. I've decided to try and do some quick sketches everyday again.
