Bold Colour

  Out of the drawer and onto the palette, I wanted to explore the boldness of  colour, indoors this time. Acrylics are not my usual choice for my sketchbook, but recently I have been admiring Abstract Art and I have been inspired to have a go. With no preconceived pattern in my head, the paint…

How to draw sound

I had a wonderful day walking and drawing sound in the sunshine in the Brecon Beacons yesterday.  Heading into the hills, it was a day to capture the sounds from the season. I was so surprised with the amount of insect life, which joined me on my page, all interested in what I was doing….
