The Forest Stream

This is a picture I drew a few years ago. I have to admit I was rather surprised at how good it is. I may consider re-drawing it, but to be honest I really like it so I probably wont. For this drawing I used HB, 2B and 6B. If I remember correctly I worked on it for no more then a week.

(quick up-date) "In the Garden" I still haven't decided what I'm going to do with this one. It's going to be a garden theme, I just have to figure out composition and such. Fun. Fun. Fun.

Artistic Boredom

So, this is what happens when you're bored and have nothing to do.
The cake was made, by my mum, for my nephew and step-dads birthday party. They have the same birthday. For those of you that don't see it I made the Smarties spiral.
Yeah, I was totally bored. lol. It was a yummy cake. But a pain to cut it.

Fishy Fishy

hehe. I never get sick of saying, "Fishy Fishy." It always makes me smile.
Any way, This is my “Singing Fish with Toothpaste.” I did this one a few months ago.
I was very bored one night and couldn't think of something to draw. So I messaged a very good friend of mine and asked him what I should draw. First he replied, “A naked pine nut.” I thought about it and tried some quick sketches. It didn't work. I sent another message to him and he replied, “A singing fish with toothpaste.” I thought about it, then did some random basic drawings and came up with this.
I have called it “The Vision” That is why there is no reflection or shadow from the fish.
I'm rather proud of this picture. I used my graphite pencils. (LOVE those pencils). When I actually got around to it, it took about a week or two to complete. Mainly cause I was only able to work on it at night before bed. It's an A4 size picture. I totally love it.
So this is it. “The Vision”
Dedicated to Matt Seychell. xox

So, I thought it was now time to blog a piece of art work the i'm actually working on.
This is the basic idea for it.

And this is the beginning for it.

I'm thinking of calling it, "In the Garden"
I'm also planning to change the wings. Will see what happens. I'm using graphite pencils and I plan to colour it. This is just one of those pictures that I wont be happy with till i've put some colour into it.

Colours of the... Mini Easter Egg Wrappers?

Yep. That's right. Mini egg wrappers. For a couple years now i've been collecting them. I fold them over a few times (colour side showing) and put them in a bag. (yeah, i'm so not lame) Sadly, by accident I got rid of a good lot of them. But I started again. Why? you ask... “Because of the colours.” I love the colours. They are bright. And they remind me of the sky and forest. And most importantly, inspire me. There have been quiet a few pictures that have been inspired by them. This is one of them: The Butterflies.

I started it one Easter. It took a couple weeks to complete. For this I wanted to do something that reflected the colours but also a sunset. (the colours are deffinately stronger in life then photo). And this, my friends, is why I began keeping them.
