Everyday driving to work, I am surrounded by the most amazing structures... Coupled with amazing skies and lightening effects, I have a had a big desire to draw them. So finally, I have gotten around to making some studies and taking some photographs. All the time I am thinking film set, never mind blade runner - this is the place for a sci-fi!!
It was a beautiful day and walk was reminding me not to sit too long in my house drawing but get out here and sketch. Especially as the structures I was looking at are alien to me, I dont really understand what any of them are or do!
This is a Blind Continuous Line Drawing - with only a bit of cheating - i.e you are not supposed to take the pen off the paper or look at the paper... Those experts out there will know - I cheated a bit and looked and took my pen off the paper!! But only a bit!!
I should really colour this one - its such fun.
However I went on to make drawings from the photos rather scratchy in places, especially when I am just not sure what is going on!! Can you see which bit this is on the final image... - no prizes as yet!
I then went on to do this ...
Which I love to bits!! The sea grass was a later edition after my husband insisted it should have some nature in the foreground. I had to agree - this is what is so fascinating - we are in the middle of a nature reserve..... It's these juxtapositions that are so exciting .. so perhaps I will be keeping my eyes open for our local foxes, pheasants, herons, and mad march hares.... Or even the odd Colin the Robot!!
This so makes me laugh - perhaps I am on to something.... xx
Thanks for reading !!

Once a Community Artist, now an Lecturer at CCAD, this blog is about my personal creative journey. Recently married to a guy who loves photography, who gave me an impetus to create alongside him. So out came the pens, paper and the computer. My illustrations, are created via the support of 3 very industrious cats, so any criticism I past that straight to them.... I hope you like and would love any feedback...
