Sketch-a-Doodles






For some reason, I haven't felt like painting anything representational.

The gelli plate has been calling, though.  It's time for some healthy doses of color.

  4. These are lovely! I'm not really surprised that you don't feel like painting with all the stress of house hunting. I think you have been doing a brilliant job getting the work done that you have! I remember the topsy turvy feeling that it gives you well and it is most unsettling. The right house will find you soon I am sure it is waiting just for you to turn it into a beautiful home. Best of luck and best wishes.

  7. Great drawings! Just looked at a you tube video on gelli plate printing - because I had never heard of it - very cool. Colour helps on dreary days. Have fun.

  10. Really like the depiction of hair on the top model - so pretty with so few strokes of the pen/pencil! Looking forward to some color when you're ready to dive in.

  11. Stunning drawings - these would be outstanding stamps! I thought of stamps, because you cannot buy such expressive stamps, nowhere!
    I am curious about your gelli prints!
    Happy weekend! Rike x
