Art Drops, Winsdor & Newton and Sharpie drawings.

Yesterday I only managed to start one drawing and it is nowhere near finished and so not worth showing you today. Not often I don't have new works to show you but hey that is how that happens.

I did another little art drop today and left them near Barnoon Workshop, as it is nearing holiday time and I have received a few messages asking if there will be any art drops over the Easter Holidays and my answers is yes there will be and I am upping my product thereof.

Today I attended and help at the drawing session at Barnoon Workshop and for a change it was run by Tree Stewart who is part of the team and also runs aerial workshops at The Island Centre and is a member of Emerald Dawn. It was a really thought provoking session involving composition.

Since then we have been working on our website and social media pages after that I have contacted Winsor & Newton and Sharpie offering to test there pens to destruction and maybe to get some sort of sponsorship. I do so much drawing that actually I cannot quite afford to have enough of the pens and markers to do explore much further and just use what I can afford. I would be happy to extol the virtues of these pens which I have done many times in my blogs over the last year and a bit that I have been doing this daily blog.

As I have no other new works to show you today I will show you some Sharpie and W&N works from the last year or so.

Above is the cover of  'Obliterarty Volume 2' done with the wedge end of promarkers.

A page from Obliterarty Volume 2 with Sharpies and a fine liner.

Sharpies to destruction on A1 Fabriano 300gsm, dots get bigger as the nibs enlarge through use.

Above is another drawing from a whole sketchbook work done with promarkers, lovely vibrant colours.

I am off to draw now so I have something new to show you tomorrow. Cheers.
