Drawings / Painting
I didn’t intend for this blog to be about drawing or painting. It was purely me learning to play the piano. Like many things, its morphed into something else, a splatterpad for any of my ventures. I’ve never really painted or drawn, but i’m giving it a go now – and am really enjoying it! I did a few pencil sketches when first starting this blog but am now trying watercolour since May/June 2014. Like everything in life much practice required!
August 2014 – Another landscape based on an exercise from Water colour for the absolute beginner
Aug 2014 – The painting above is of a view of Derwent Water after visiting in June 2014. The other three paintings below are by following guides from a book and are all relatively quick (as can be seen!), so this one was me going it alone, taking a bit more time and trying out the techniques that I’ve learnt. I am quite pleased with the result and will try and keep practicing!
July 2014 – Basic landscape from Water colour for the absolute beginner
July 2014 – Another Basic landscape from Water colour for the absolute beginner
June 2014 – A trial painting of some fruit. Admittedly using a book as a guide – LINK
July 2012 – The concept of the Bucket. The power of the depths!
July 2012 – Snowdon from the Llamberis Path
A Jellyfish emerging from the depths (a very quick scribbling!!)
After not drawing for 20 years (or ever really), I’ve suddenly started drawing. What better subject than Victoria watching TV!?
