First Post Travel Sketchbook


Page 03 detail

My travel sketchbooks were of various sizes and formats, not one exactly like any of the others. When I came back I started producing drawings for my exhibition on single sheets of paper so they could be framed, also it was cold and I wasn’t spending much time out and about, so for a while […]

The Flux of Traveling so Far

Life Drawing Session


Some twenty minute poses from life drawing two weeks ago, looking forward to going again tomorrow! In that last one I had just erased my preliminary lines and started putting in the ‘real’ ones when the pose changed, but somehow I like the point at which I was forced to stop.

Life Drawing Session


I’ve started going to life drawing sessions more than a year ago, but mostly took it as a chance to get out of my little sketchbooks and onto big big sheets of paper. Now that I have even bigger sheets of paper pinned to the walls of my room to draw on, I can go […]
