2015-2016 Drawing & MM Journey

I have been sharing my art on my Instagram account, you can see that here.  I am trying to keep my art and my craft separate on the main part but I would like to keep up to date with that here so that you can see if you want and I can check my progress easily.

I used a watercolour pencil to draw the flowers then coloured the page with AquaTints.  Once dry I went back in with my Colorista pencils and a chalk pencil to add details and texture to the flowers (A5).

Using a snippet which I coloured with AquaTints.  Then I took a watercolour pencil to draw the flower.  I used my AquaTints to colour the petals and once dry I used Colorista pencils and a chalk pen to add texture, depth, shadow and highlight (approximately 150cm square).
I created a soft background then used a pencil to sketch the flowers and then colour them with AquaTints.  I used one of my black Pitt pens to draw around the petals and a white chalk pencil to add light (A5 page).

2015 March

When I was younger I used to draw and paint a lot. When I changed schools I lost my choice to go to art classes and then my art was pushed to one side. After winning a book at the end of 2014 I started to dabble again and I have shared those posts and my attempts here so that I could have a place where they were documented chronologically in the hope that I would see an improvement.
