Hello everyone, last week I explained that I wouldn’t get much artwork done, but I did none at all, I was away from my desk all week but that didn’t stop me thinking about it, and its not difficult to feel inspired while out in nature. I’m always stopping to admire some plant or creature and I absolutely love going somewhere I’ve never been before like we did on Wednesday.

Well, I still haven’t made a great deal of progress with the Scotsman drawing but I did manage to get a few hours in. There’s not a lot of process to talk about with this one, I’m just painting away on pastel paper, layer by layer. Here’s a W.I.P. (W.I.P = Work In Progress) shot of some of the first layer.
I finally finished the Fluffle Bee!
I’m really sorry that I haven’t posted for such a long while; there are a couple of reasons:
I said last week that I find taking a short break from artwork can be a good thing, and it is, so long as I do keep it short. I am pretty addicted and actually start to get depressed if I can’t create something.
Another thing that I find helps is to break from my usual thing and experiment a bit. It’s fun and you can learn a lot, eventually it may even be possible to develop a completely new and unique style and process (hopefully).
So that’s what I’ve been doing this week. It’s an experiment in mixed media to gain different textures.
