This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

More drawings......

One day I found a pigeon with a broken wing. We named him Walter (you know, Walter Pigeon)......this reminds me of him.

OK, reality check........I am drawing and painting these practice pieces, simple lines, exaggerated faces to what end? That I don't know. I have to say that I prefer realism. This experiment is hard for me. I am enjoying it but to over simplify is very hard for me.

I do know that watercolour and drawing paper do not work well together. All these need ironing and are warped (in more ways than one haha)

  1. LOL! You made me laugh! "warped"! Janice you are doing very well, but as I always say, do what you love! If you prefer realism, than do it!!! The girl with the blond hair looks scared or startled! You captured that well! I love them all!!
