Anyway it's a bit of a bugger when the weather is doing it's best to provide us with some last minute sunshine. Autumn is well and truly here on Dartmoor, the bracken, which was green only a week or so ago is now turning a lovely rusty gold colour and the Boston Ivy on my patio wall is also beginning to change to a glorious red. I LOVE AUTUMN.... ah 'the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness'. My favourite season..... I get very melancholic in the autumn......sigh!
Enough of that........... I am still trying to find time to fit in finishing off my dragon pic but also am trying to keep my blog posts going so I shall endeavour to fill the gaps between my new works with others that are finished.
These just happen to be waiting in the wings.... so without further ado, she flicks the velvet cloth away to reveal her next masterpiece like some drug crazed matador!
Sorry about that got a bit carried away (should be, quips my other half!)
Anyway this is Raven Moon.... I love ravens so I decided to paint one. This was done with alcohol inks (Adirondak Ink range by Ranger) and acrylics, with the slightest hint of iridescence to the wings, which hasn't come out very well in the photo... but does look very nice.... really!! oh and I did draw a raven with Bic biro too.... I'd forgotten about that one. Do you know how great biros are for drawing with? They're brilliant! You can get a full range of tones and they're dirt cheap unlike some other specialist drawing pens on the market.
Here's also a hare drawing done with biro.
Well folks, I've done my bit for today. Hopefully will be up to completing my dragon soon. Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Don't work too hard this week.
