New Prints

_1140335

Over the last few years I’ve really come to appreciate the seasons a lot more, and find myself constantly on the look out for interesting plants and fruits that I might be able to capture down on paper. I’ve been doing a lot of walking and have been making mental notes of where the best apple trees, blackberry brambles and figs are – not just for drawing either of course!

In the last months I’ve started a collection of drawings which I’m calling ‘Series of Five’, inspired by this interest in the changing seasons, and picking up from where I began with this drawing of Oysters I did for A Better Place Journal.

I finally got round to getting some prints ordered, which you can now buy from my etsy shop. It was fun taking some stylised photos of my prints with a new-old camera that I bought recently.

The camera I bought is a Panasonic Lumix G1, from 2010. I bought it second hand as I was looking for something cheap and fairly basic for a beginner like myself. It’s been really great so far, and I’m looking forward to getting to know it better.

I’m looking forward to seeing what I can get down on paper as Autumn rolls in!

My week – 3rd June

This week has been a nice one, even though it hasn’t involved much activity. Whilst I’m settling in to my new job at the cafe, my coffees certainly don’t look anything like the ones I’ve drawn in my post (yet).

Oyster art

Morning everyone! It’s a sunny day and I’ve been practicing drawing oysters…for an exciting website soon to be unveiled later this summer (not mine I might add, although I wish it was!)

Oysters are amazing little things…so much colour and texture in these treasures.
