Sisters - pen and ink drawing. I really enjoyed drawing their hair.
Watercolour of hand tethering a cheetah.
Sketch of "Primavera" to be completed next week
The following are prints by printmaker Angie Lewin
Blog time again. Doesn't it come around quickly? I would love to blog more often than once a week but it is well nigh impossible to be that organised. I was contacted the other day by someone who has eight (yes 8) blogs. How on earth can they keep track of all those blogs and update them frequently, unless they are blogging all day and every day. Well, each to his own, but it wouldn't do for me.
Had a busy drawing and painting week as usual and I really enjoyed myself splashing a bit of colour around. My pink hand picture has been around in sketch form for a long time and I am not too sure about the border. I think a more subdued border may look better, but that is for another time. I have so many pictures inside my head that I probably won't get around to revisiting for some time.
As you probably know from my blogging, I love all manner of chickens, hens, cockerels, chicks etc. I think they are so "drawable" and cute. The four I have illustrated here are actually framed in a line and hung up in my home. I think they look really sweet. I love all the different styles of combs they have, and in fact, I could spend an inordinately long time just drawing cockerels head gear. As you can probably guess I have a lot of books featuring poultry.
The "Primavera" sketch is one that has been beetling around in my head for some time. Totally out of season of course, but who cares about that. I plan to colour this digitally over the coming week and you can expect an explosion of colour.
My featured artist this week is Angie Lewin, who is a very well know English printmaker. Her work features on a multitude of things including fabrics, prints, crockery, stationery etc. I love her contemporary printmaking style and she does some lovely alliums and umbellifers. If you would like to see more of her work, her website features lots more and can be found here.
Lastly I would like to thank my blogging friend Phyllis, spinknitandlife, for awarding me a blogging trophy as one of her favourite blogs. Many thanks for that Phyllis. Very kind of you. This is my second lovely trophy as I received one last time from the very talented Mellanie of Genxsters, which is a blog very worth visiting.
Hope you all have a good blogging week.
