Watercolours, brush pen and a black Sharpie. As time goes on my flagrant disregard for trying to draw tight pictures grows. And I like it.
Starting to get a ‘little’ bit bored of watercolours already. I’ve got 3 weeks now until the next session so I’m going to have a good hard thunk on what direction to go next. I’m open to suggestions! :D
Firstly – thank you to everyone who voted in the poll in my previous post, its a massive step in the right direction :D
Here are the pics from tonight’s session. Felt very low stress, I was really trying to not worry about doing good drawings and just getting on with it.
I used a mixture of Brush Pen, a black Sharpie and watercolours. I’m using a different brand of paper this time round and its subtly different in texture and feel. More absorbent, less ‘accurate’ but dries much faster.
This will probably be my last 10 week term for a good while as another micro noise human will be joining the family around the start of Autumn xx
I’m running out of space and have been trying to work out what to do with all of the artwork I have created over the 20 years I’ve been Life Drawing. I have original intaglio prints, acrylic canvasses, watercolour studies and much much more sitting unloved and unseen.
I’m considering whether its worth putting stuff up in an etsy shop (or similar) and having to go through the rigmarole of self assessment tax forms again.
So, help a guy out. How much would you pay for my arts? I’ve set up a mega simple poll at the following link. Click it and tick a checkbox, it takes literally 2 seconds and is completely anonymous.
I made a little animation. Yesterday morning I posted this on twitter: “Thought experiment: the earth rotates 365 time per year and has four seasons, imagine that cycle in 4 seconds, the planet breathes”
Triggered off by this thought about how quick the seasons change as you get older, I chopped out a loop from the start of Massive Attack’s ‘Heat Miser’ for the breathing and lashed 4 x 20frm mixes together in Flash and posted up to youtube
I wanted to get this up ASAP so its basic. I’d like to have painted little watercolours for each of the seasons but it is what it is.

I’m playing records again on the night. Which will be all the fun. Love playing records, me. If you’re in Bristol, you’re in the digital world, a developer and want to win prizes – you’ve found your event! Sign up here:
