Happy (Spring?) Doodle


Feb 2014

Today has been a beautiful day – sunny and even kind of warm! – and the best thing of all is that the spring flowers are starting to come out now. Lots of daffodils are out around here and that makes me very happy :)


Doodle: Tropical



Another coloured pencil/fineliner drawing. At the moment I’m really having fun experimenting with coloured pencils, which I always used to use for a preliminary play with colour before moving onto paint. I’m still working on my blending technique, but I’m loving the bright colours I can get from them whilst still, crucially for a wobbly-handed person like me, maintaining some kind of control (ie the ability to stop and pick up again on the same spot without leaving a telltale ‘I wavered here’ mark).

More to come!
