My Creative endevours have moved

MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Adding detail

I've begun with a few of my latest sketches add more detail to them with clothing and accessories.... slowly slowly catchee monkey.  Not biting of more than I can chew yet so to speak... but one step nearer the prized goal of doing a real portrait.

Makes a real difference I think and as is becoming usual I added colour in photoshop.  I left her hair grey in this one just because I liked the effect.

Thanks for all your good wishes re- my parents.  Mam is having a brain scan today so hopefully she and the rest of the family can be reassured that everything is ok once it's over and then maybe she will be given a course of medication that will alleviate her symptoms and make her feel better.

because the rest of the colours are just me plus i wore big bows like that in the '80's
