In South Shields theres a whole stretch of parks. As the weather was typically British: grey, overcast, probably going to rain, we took shelter in the park under a handy canopy we found. After much deliberation we settled now what we were going to paint. naturally after we had started applying paint to board the […]
And I’m back. Artist improvement and not drawing everyday.
We got ofsteded. I am a perfectionist that rewrote all my lesson plans and SOWs. Then I got a horrendous head cold and am now frantically catching up on everything. Today’s post is brought on my contemplating a popular YouTubers ‘addressing the commenters’ video: I find her take on on improving and developing as an […]

Mask. Reference from Letzteschatten-stock. Well I think the month has helped me get better at drawing, and noses, but I still need to work on drawing smoke. This photos a bit lighter than the original as it was to dark, but I didn’t really notice until now as I was galloping out the door to […]

In an effort to improve my people drawing I did some sketching when attending an Art Fund lecture on country houses. I can’t remember the name of the lecturer, but he was very good. It was about how country houses and castles are functionally different, but they did overlap. In exploring this it highlighted how […]

I planned to do inktober last year,I just never got past the thinking about it stage. This year, I am determined. Who needs sleep? I am planning out my prompts now, and although I may not have time to do one each day, I will have moments where I can catch up. (For instance, the […]
Sketching on the go!
I’ve just been away to London for three days and I took some sketching implements with me. As a follower of Liz Steel, Teoh Yi Chie and Path Southern Pierce (warning, you’ll walk away with a new foundation pen and a portable palette) I gathered up my materials and decided i would make use of the train ride down to […]
