Will life be quieter?

Times are changing. When I drew this more than ten years ago I never imagined there would be a female Vice President in the United States, but Camalla Harris has just been inaugurated. It is another step on the change in society that has happened in the twentieth and now the twenty first  century. The Suffragets would be amazed and, I hope, pleased. 

As for the 46th President of the United States, I hope he presides over a safer country. A kind country. Perhaps a country that dumps fake news generated by spin doctors and naysayers’. A healthier country and a healthier world. As a bystander across the pond I can only wish you well…

Jewellery

#30daysketchbookchallenge, jewellery. Struggled to draw the tiny beads on this necklace. I was trying to make it look realistic, I’m not sure I did and the photo is a bit blurry.

Used pencils, felt pens and coloured pencils to produce this.

Redo with metallic paints and better photo…

I miss my Mom

I miss my Mom, its been around ten years since she died, but I often wish I could just phone her up for advice. I did a painting of her in 2008 and I just did this sketch from it. I can see so many mistakes. I need to set an easle up. Trying to draw while holding the painting… Tired arms…

The best thing are her eyes, they are right…
