My 2018 challenge part 4

4th February

Another from the beach. Shells are not that common along our stretch of coastline so i often pick up those that I find. I hope that I have identified this correctly as a Peppery Furrow.4-2

5th February

Down in Southwold thinking about paintings of the sea and gathering some reference, time also for a quick sketch. I love theses days where the northerly winds kick up our sea.5-2

6th February

3 minutes to capture one of my sketching pencils.


7th February

Yes my hand holding my sketchbook, I am left handed.


8th February

I have been lino cutting this week all to be revealed soon and today is first proof so the inks are out. Quite a big print so the press is being used instead of hand burnishing.


9th February

Always interesting is the elliptical shape of the top  and bottom of a bowl, even over the small difference in height it is important to observe and capture the difference between the two.9-2

10th February

Sweet Violets found in the shelter of a bush in my garden, surely a sign that spring is on the way. It is obvious the days are increasing in length but as yet it has remained cold and particularly damp. 10-2
