Lunch with my mum

Heres a drawing I did on a napkin while I was having lunch with my mum in Liverpool. I think the lines and marks are really stylised and relaxed. It was a good way to pen down the memory.

I miss colour. Rich, deep, expressive colour, after endlessly mono-printing in a romantic and soul healing manner using earthly light amounts of greasy black paint. I'm back knocking on the door of colour with my bags to move back in. With serious plans however, to keep mono-printing.

Whilst in Liverpool I had taken lots of photos on my phone of things I thought looked worthy of capturing. I have taken some time to go back to these drawings in the last couple of days, and work on a few illustrations from them. Below are some of the ones of Calderstones park, Liverpool.

Drawing on the move

Recently, I have enjoyed doing extremely quick and simple sketches whilst on the move - on buses, walking, grabbing a quick coffee - and I have chosen a select few to upload to my blog.

There a fewer marks because you don't have enough time to be over precise, leaving you making confident marks that suggest shapes, thoughts and feelings.

More to come...

Great actor 'Some like it hot' is one of my favourite movies, I love to have it playing at christmas since I watched it for the 1st time one christmas day on TV. There's nothing like a vintage classic on Christmas.
