Hello and welcome to my new blog! Here I'll be posting updates and things I'm working on.
I've been working digitally on a lot of projects lately, and definitely missing my sketchbook and traditional materials. So armed with a handful of marker pens and my watercolours, I joined an online drawing party organised by illustrator Melanie Chadwick. It was so nice to draw and chill, but with a bit of structure, and the theme was old, vintage bottles.
I've wanted to go to one of Mel's workshops ever since I discovered her work online, but Cornwall is rather far from me (also #1 on my list of UK places I want to visit so maybe someday!) So an online version was great! It reminded me of life drawing classes at uni which I always enjoyed, with timed drawings and challenged to loosen you up. Some 30 second drawings, drawing without looking at the paper, continuous line, and with your non-dominant hand (which is why some look rather wobbly!)
I had fun and it was just what I needed to inspire me for the work I've got on this month, so thankyou Melanie!
