Above and below are the two sides of the first drawing I did last night with my new Windsor & Newton promarkers. I decided to use them both in each drawing I did last night. The one below is the 'bleeding narrative' version on the reverse side of the page.
Above is the second of my double drawings last night, here I am playing with the idea of not rigidly finishing off but stopping when satisfied and not reaching the logical conclusion. It is sometimes a little bit of a thought struggle to stop and on these ones I am pleased with the results. I know what I see in this and the 'bleeding narrative' below i do wonder what other people might see?
Above is the final drawing I did last night with my two new markers, exploring new pens or new colours does make me a happy little artist. I do not have huge budgets for art materials which is why it pleases me and also why I probably work with such contemporary drawing materials and sometimes found mediums.
Below is the bleeding narrative version and it seems to me that I carried on with the not quite filling the drawing and I do like the odd balance it gives to the image.
Above is an art drop I have been preparing in between doing other drawings.

After a huge late fried breakfast we decided to go for a walk passed The Garrick Hotel and out to Clodgy. It was a bit windy but not cold and the views were magnificent, not sure I have captured them with my phone but they give you a good idea.

A short while along the path we found this little creature crossing the path. It is a slow worm with a missing tail. Slow Worms are lizards so the tail will re grow in time. This is the first one I have seen for a very long time. I remember seeing them in Cornwall in the 60's and 70's around Sennen Cove but I am not sure I have seen one since then and Zoe has never seen one to it was a kind of a blessing. It took a while to get off the path as we watched probably why they are called 'slow'.
Back home now feeling quite invigorated for the two hour walk we did preparing stuff for tomorrow and then onto a bit of cooking and clearing up in the House of Wotnot, then drawing.
