Journal scribbling






No painting to post at the moment - am working on some small canvases from the railway idea, but they are slow going. I've almost finished 'Autumn Fall'. So, to keep the momentum of posting here are some drawings out of my visual diary or journal, whatever is your preference. I keep this downstairs and in the evening usually draw for an hour or more. I'm a bit obsessive with this coloured pencil 'colouring in' . There are a couple of very scribbly drawings that were a challenge from my husband - to complete these in a couple of minutes. The flowers are from a Giger book - drawn from a painting in his collection (my drawing is nothing like the painting, by the way), the onion from my kitchen bench just before I chopped it up, the portrait from a television interview (I won't say who it is but if you care to guess...), and a quick line drawing of a young person watching TV.

Busy busy - go you :-) I wish I could find more enthusiasm for drawing, I know I need to...

The more I draw the more I want to draw - I used Denise's idea of keeping something handy in which to draw and have pretty much got into a routine of drawing in the evening after dinner, watching TV (while you're painting, Cath...) and I keep a box of pencils and pens handy. That's the A4 journal. I also keep an A5 journal in my bag but I haven't got into a routine of drawing when out and about. Intend to try.

I enjoyed looking at your journal :) I liked the view of the gardens and houses.
