A new journal..

Hi everyone… surprise!

I’m just posting to let you know that I’m starting a new online art journal to record some of my doings…

You can find me writing now at 3littlepears

It’s been wonderful to take a break, to step back and become tactile.  I’m very much enjoying it.. and thought I would document bits and pieces of my experiments and discoveries in my new online journal, as well as in my ‘real’ journals.

Perhaps I’ll see you there 🙂

At the beginning of this year, I decided it was time to pick up my pencils and brushes again.. it’s been too long and part of that (for me) is keeping a journal with ideas, sketches, doodles etc…

Starting out this year, I am very rusty again!! …and I need to be ok with that as I’ve taken a big break, but I’m loving being back, playing with pencil and paint.

I thought I’d share some ‘boots and all’ stuff of what I’m doing or being inspired by and I want to keep a record here too – this blog was (and is) an arts journal 🙂 ..including my photography.

I’m just having a bit of rusty fun so far.. we’ll see where this takes me..or not.. but for now it makes me happy!

Objects.. and ideas..

Finding inspiration in ‘the ordinary’..

..and inspiration from other sources..

That’s it for now… 🙂

Sketching – Boat on sand..

It’s been a while since I picked up my pencil, but yesterday I sat and sketched for a while.  It’s very nice to be drawing again… I’m fiddling with this one as an idea for a watercolour painting… no idea if I’ll go ahead, but I like to trial ideas in my journal for compositions, colour etc., so it’s a beginning.

First sketch of the year… Woohoo!

Float my Boat

I found a photo of this boat (not my own) and it’s a very worn old fishing boat, I think… love all the texture!
