It’s six weeks since I last posted some of my sketches. Although I do mark making every day some of my designs have become more intricate and have taken much longer to complete. The other thing I noticed is that I now like working on multiple sketches. So sometimes I’ll create the background of a new sketching spread and come back to it at a later date.
For new readers, here are some more of my older sketches.
This piece here below was inspired by seeing some funky tiles. After completing all squares I had this urge to now work further into each square. I know this sounds funny. I first have to make a coloured copy before attempting this. The other thing is that some squares could work as a bigger piece on their own, so lots of food for thought.
I started this before Easter and the inspiration came from… err… Easter eggs. This took ABSOLUTE ages to finish, well beyond Easter:-) never mind… now I see them as little jewel eggs. In fact it would be fun to enlarge this or maybe even make a painting.
A little sketch of St Paul’s Cathedral while sitting in the members café of Tate Modern.
The wonderful Sonja Delaunay exhibition inspired me to do the following sketchbook spread. I just loved the exhibition and can’t wait to return.
This next piece is a close representation of one of Sonja Delaunay’s paintings. I wanted to try and copy it to understand her amazing sense of colour and composition.
A bit of doodling while watching some TV.
The weekend of de-cluttering my office space inspired this next piece. All I saw was papers and magazines galore. This works on its own but I would like to take it a step further.
An unfinished piece in my sketchbook.
This here was based on some pumpkins and squash I saw. I decided to draw the background and come back later to see what to do with it.
While tidying up, I came across a box of beads I had. This inspired the next spread in my sketchbook.
And finally a little bit of inspiration from precious stones, adapted and unfinished.
As ever, I’m very greatful for all the lovely comments and continuous support.
