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.

My latest sketchbook...............

My latest sketchbook, it tinted paper. It also does not take watercolour very well. It seems to crinkle up a lot. I am just showing a very few from this one.

The only thing I like about it is that I can use white. I liked that for snow.Well then I decided to try to do a few sketches of the human form

I am no good at males. So I figured I will try to do some females. As they are smoother and easier to sketch I figured that may be a good place to begin.

I also wanted to try some different poses and see if I could make them less stiff

I was quite pleased with a couple of them. The one on the left looks like she has a very small waist but actually I have got her tummy there but it doesn't show up well in the picture. In any case, maybe I can do some more in my next book. I still have some simple sketches in this book and I am about half way through. I may find a few more but at this point, the rest did not photograph well. Need better light but that's OK. Another time.
