Time To Draw …

Today I’m taking a break from knitting (elbow issues) to enjoy my cup of hot tea a bit of drawing. It’s been almost a year since I’ve drawn in my art journal and I feel like I’ve rather lost my drawing ability. Like anything, if you do not consistently do something you tend to loose what you have learned. For me at the moment, that it how it is with drawing but I know when I make this part of my daily routine (just like spinning 15 minutes a day) I will get back into the swing of things.

My current state of drawing.

For now I’m starting something simple and we will see where this goes. For me, pen and ink has fascinated me for many years and I’m always in awe what pen and ink artist create. When I started knitting and spinning, I put my ”all” into it and I want to start doing this again with my drawing as I truly have missed it.

The one artist that has inspired me for a very long time is Philip Harris. He uses traditional pen and ink (dip pen and bottled ink), which is my long term goal to learn. His artwork is phenomenal and today I decided to sign up for his online art course. I’m excited !!!

Do you enjoy drawing, painting or watercolor ?
