I’m back! Work done, let the blogging recommence 😀 No, I haven’t turned to drink during my blogging hiatus, this was a drawing for a fathers day card.
A friend was telling me about her late father; as a young man he got a tattoo in France using illegal blue ink. The ink was prone to swelling in sunlight and distorting the image. But it ment that when my friend was a little girl she loved to see her fathers seahorse tattoo puffing up its blue tummy in summer. Sometimes a mistake we make turns out to be a wonderful thing further along the line.
I’m taking a short break from blogging while my university deadlines are looming. Normal service should resume in June, I’ll see you then 🙂
Head over to Musical Mystery Tour 2011 for a dose of eclectic musical recommendations from blogmaster Annes “year of music”.
My apologies for the drawing drought. The iPhone WordPress app has become very buggy and keeps messing up my posts. So I’ve jumped ship and invested in a new iPhone app to write posts on. This is the first test of BlogPress! So far it’s proving very user friendly.
Todays drawing was for yesterdays mothers day card.
Hey Mutti! Love you!
I’ve been noticing the difference between photographs of my drawings taken in daylight and in electric light. The daylight ones have much truer colour and don’t have the yellow cast to them. So I either need to do my daily drawing in the morning, or buy a daylight bulb!
Before starting my art degree, I drew constantly. My free time was filled with drawing. My walls were covered in pages from my sketchbooks, and I always had a pen in hand.
Sadly studying art for the last few years has turned drawing into work and I gave up drawing recreationally. The aim of this blog is to reclaim drawing as a hobby. By posting one drawing a day I hope to get back into the habit of drawing for drawings sake.
