A Long Time Coming

It has been a while since writing a new post ……. Decided to repost my old entries so there is more of a flow and less of a leap to the current posts. I have also made my blog more simple, so that I am able to upload work more easily, which I’m secretly hoping will help maintain my momentum in blogging…. well we'll see..........

Cave Dweller

I chose to base my summer project on the theme of nature. So when a Wren decided to build its nest very close to the house and after watching the busy parents bringing in food, I thought it would be a great opportunity for a drawing. Unfortunately the birds do not stay still for long enough to draw, with all those mouths to feed, so this is from a photograph.The chicks were so noisy you could hear them from the sitting room, but all have left now, so it is rather quiet.

Here goes (went) my first post (before I re-posted it)...... really enjoyed our etching workshop at the end of the first year at Uni. Found the process was a little more lengthy than anticipated, although enjoyable and yielded some good results for a first attempt :) I love the unintentional scratchy marks in the background, adding age and character to the VW Beetle.
