Just for a bit of fun whilst my pencils were out-thought I would have a go at sketching a 'body'....hence Mr Muscle!

Lakeside (in graphite)

The first 'Lakeside' was a sketch created using graphite and watercolour pencils, this one is purely sketched using graphite.

Pink Rose

After a successful attempt at sketching in graphite I decided to have a go using watercolour pencils and 'Pink Rose' is the result! A softer image but still quite effective. Which one do you like best....let me have your comments!

Black Rosebud

Recently I have turned my attention to sketching using both graphite and water colour pencils. 'Black Rosebud' is sketched using graphite. I was quite pleased with this first attempt! Let me know what you think by attaching your comments!

Blog update

Hi everyone

Just a few words to update the blog......

My family and I recently had a bracing week away in sunny (yes..I jest!) Filey. Wow, never had snow with my Easter egg before, but there's always a first time!
It sure was freezing in that caravan, we knew it would be but I reckon we just didn't realise how much!

I have recently 'had a bash' at watercolours and am quite pleased with the results. My first painting is entitled 'Tulips' which I will post soon.

I am pleased to say that my enthusiasm for painting seems to be returning at long last. I think I am going to concentrate on watercolours for a while now.

The picture shown on this post was taken from clifftops in Filey on Easter Monday early in the morning after overnight snowfall and I reckon it's a great subject for another painting-it really is beautiful.
