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

Derwent Water

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!

After not drawing for 20 years (or ever really), I’ve suddenly started drawing.  What better subject than Victoria watching TV!?
