Colour

I saw an exhibition yesterday at the Museum in the Park, Stroud, of paintings and drawings by Robert Davison. The thing that really inspired me was his bold, loose use of colour. So straight out this morning to have a go. Usually I draw in pen first & then use neocolors on top, so this plain colour is a bit of a departure for me but I was feeling for some time that I'd become stuck in a rut. Always good to experiment & try out new ideas.

Little book

A little book for the monthly meeting of Stroud Artist Books this week. The theme was Alter Ego. Being born under Pisces I feel the need for the sea whenever I can get to it. Yet the fish seem to swim in opposite directions! Is that what makes me procrastinate so much?!
