Dinner Doodles and a new weekend project

As part of the 90 day challenge I have been filling up a small cheap and cheerful notepad with random doodles while making and eating my dinner after work. It is an easy way to get an hour of something artistic into your day and because its just a cheap pad there is no pressure or that feeling that you are wasting paper. I love my black Staedtler fineliners. I have all the coloured versions too, so might make use of them next week in my next batch of doodles.

I have also been playing around with my watercolours, again just random patterns with no forethought or planning. I am going to put together a pinterest board on watercolours for inspiration and try do some actual painting on the lovely watercolour paper I bought.

Finally, I have just started a weekend project with this large plywood ‘A’ from an old restaurant sign my dad gave me. The back was covered in a mix of cement glue and plaster so the pic here is me getting out the old elbow grease and white spirit to scour it off. I am now painting it with white gesso primer and planning what to actually paint on it. I am thinking something Cyprus related. Maybe in sections having the sun, sky, mountains, pine trees and then ending with the sea. See what happens with it!

    • Thanks so much for your comments, its always nice to get some positive feedback! I really recommend it, hopefully I will stay at it and fill up my notepad with some fun things. In the past I used to tear out pages I didn’t like, but I’m just going with the flow on this project!
