We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Strut your stuff!

Really enjoying my Line & Wash classes; the third exercise was all about using coloured line. Using pens, acrylic inks, biros, pencils, basically anything that can could make a line.

We had to find a colourful reference - so I went through a few flower photographs ... but I then found Mr Rooster - search over!

I have used coloured pens, acrylic ink with dip pens, watercolour washes, and even a bit of gouache!

Started the final exercise yesterday - any project of my choice using what I have learnt during the course. I have a couple of weeks to finish it.

Then - I've signed up to another course! This one is painting trees - something I know I'm going to find particularly challenging ...


  1. Mr. Rooster never looked so good. He is a wonderful line drawing. I'm really impressed with your drawing and painting skills, and this just furthers my admiration.

  2. Love the colours and textures and, for some reason, I adore his white spats.So real he could peck off out of the picture.
