A swirling zentangle and a beautiful fly

I finally got my grotty hands on a white pen that will write on black. I’ve been wanting to get one for some time, but when you have small children, shopping can sometimes be happenstance and I haven’t happened to be in the right place to purchase one until yesterday. This isn’t what I bought […]

Creative Tuesday – Heavenly

Okay, so it’s a day early, but I drew it today so here it is. There was the whole bald, cute and nappy thing, but considering he got to sleep on a cloud and then shoot people in the butt all day, his job wasn’t too bad. Cupid, pen on bleedbroof paper, approx. 250 x […]

Sunday Sketches

The wonderful Kristin Dudish suggested I have a go at the Sunday Sketches Challenge. So I dug out my sketch book and have some of my not so hot sketches to share. I promise in the future to actually do something constructive for this challenge. I did scribble down Frenken Furter for the challenge, a […]

Colour experiments – Fallen

And Art Every Day Month strikes again 😀 Fallen, acrylic on board, approx. 300 x 300 mm. This is a follow on from my first acrylic painting, Embers. It turned out to be in a completely different style (I don’t seem to have a set style or medium, I’m higglety-pigglety), but is still an experiment […]
