Hi all, I’ve been arting away this weekend whilst the weather here, on the edge of London has been cold, windy and wet.
I took the time to complete a painting that had been sitting in a ‘prepped’ state for months.
I wanted to practice drawing insects using a lot of line work, I’ve realised that my insects tend to lack antenna and legs.. but hey..
I also used it as an opportunity to try out some new fresco finish chalk acrylic paints. I think I like these so much because they look a bit like gouache, but are permanent. I’ve been mixing them with other paints to create some nice tones.. Here is a selection of my blues..
I also finished a life book lesson by the lovely Tamara Laporte featuring a feather.
During the week I continued to work on my health and well-being, walking for 1.5 hrs per day, and trying to eat 5-a-day… which is a lot harder than it sounds. This week I’m preparing all my lunches in advance to help pack as much juicy goodness into my diet as possible.
Here are some photos taking during my walks through London.
That’s it for now.
