Coloured pencils



Wednesday 06. 04. 16 En route from the cave in St Saturnin this afternoon after picking up some wine I stopped to make a quick sketch. I wanted to try out sketching with coloured pencils. Not as easy as it might appear and there is never quite the right colour!! More experiments needed and perhaps some water.

More transfers




Wednesday 23. 03. 16 I have been playing around with more transfers this week on various surfaces. The one of Poppy is on board and the Thames is on a piece of alluminium. Also did a bit more on my meditation group portrait. A good studio day!

Tuesday 15. 03. 16 Whilst waiting for a painting to dry today I tried some transfers using gesso. I used an old B&W inkjet print of the wobbly bridge and St Paul’s. Interestingly as the B&W was actually 4 colour I ended up with some colour!!! Also the print on the opposite side also transferred!!!
