It was my birthday at the end of May, and one of the presents I received was a set of Derwent tinted charcoal pencils from my partner. He also gave me a set of Derwent wax bars and some earrings (yes, he’s a keeper!).
Of course receiving pressies like this means using them! As some regular readers may know I have another blog where I publish a poem and drawing every day. The drawings are meant to be fast responses to the poems with the intention of developing them further in the future for exhibition or a similar project.
Because I already have this blog happening the logical thing to do was to play with my new art supplies while responding to the daily poem.
So, below are some recent drawings and sketches, and each one has the link to the poem it represents beneath it.
Perhaps my next post will showcase my new wax bars
