On the Move …

Sketchbooks Cornwall Drawing

I’m on the move to a new home and busy packing up. Came across some of my old sketchbooks: it was so good looking through them, and it passed a happy hour when I should have been packing! I’ve filled hundreds of sketchbooks over the years, but I don’t keep them all: space issues and fairly frequent moves make that impractical. So I keep the special ones – those packed full of goodness, or those which bring back a special time, perhaps a holiday or a turning point.

And curiously, I came across the sketch below, from 2005, which is to be the view from my new house. I can’t wait!

Pencil Drawing – ‘Shore’

Shore rocks abstract pencil drawing

‘Shore’ – Pencil drawing on paper ( 16.6×18 ins / 42×46 cm )

Here’s one of my drawings from a while back. Still one of my favourites. It’s pretty abstracted, but it always reminds me of rocks and the flotsam on the shore, so I gave it a title.  Maybe I’ll get around to framing it sometime (the frame here is virtual, not real, alas.) It’s quite a large drawing, and I’d really like to do some more like that. I’ve just ordered some large size heavyweight paper, so maybe I will.

I’m taking part in an exhibition by my art group – Gwynngala – over the Easter weekend at Cowslips Studio, Launceston, North Cornwall . There’ll be paintings and quilts and textile art (including some new work of mine!). They have a wonderful cafe with excellent food, too. Worth a visit.

Tintagel Old Post Office – Pen & Ink Drawing in Progress

Have made good progress this week with many art-related things, including the series of drawings of the Old Post Office at Tintagel, continued from here.  It’s a lovely building, but very irregular, having evolved over the centuries. So it tends to look as if you’ve drawn it ‘wrong’ unless you straighten it up a bit!

Have a good weekend.
