Have I said before that every week I think I am going to fail and not complete an illustration? Probably. Well, surprise, surprise I felt like that again this week. It’s not always down to the lack of time. Many times I wrack my brain for an idea for the week’s theme and feel completely stumped. But I can breath a sigh of relief as it seems I always manage something in the end regardless of the outcome. So here are April’s illustrations:
Week 14: Camping
Gelli printing, pastels, posca pens
I hadn’t used pastels for years so it was good to get them out again.
Week 15: Ocean
Gelli printing, copic markers
Working with a gelli print plate always has an element of surprise which is part of the joy of working with this medium.
Week 16: Mirror
Copic markers, fineliner pens
I am enjoying developing my skills and drawing animal characters and felt quite pleased with this little ducky.
Week 17: Collector
I collect many things as a family historian, teacher, mother, illustrator and finally writer. I am hoping soon I will be collecting acceptance’s from publishers rather than rejections. 🙂
So now it is May with the following themes of grandmother, adventure, still life and ink. I wonder what I will come up with???
