Fur Berlin

Fur Berlin

A bit of a cross over today from my other site www.sarahgracedye.com but it is entirely about travel so I thought I’d share it here to. Back in November I went to Berlin and started making g a book when I got home about that.…

Welcome to 2019

Welcome to 2019

Well hello to you all for the first time in almost ten months. My apologies for going quiet but life events kind of took over and I have struggled to keep my head above water. I needed some time to rest, heal and rediscover what…

This time some drawings from the studio. I seem to be very into drawing what’s in front of me at the moment. It takes no thought and is quite relaxing. I’ve taken to drawing peoples houses as I travel around leaving little drawings as I go. Let me know if you’d like a room in your house drawn!

A Sleep Over in a Monastery- The People

A Sleep Over in a Monastery- The People

Anywhere that I have travelled in the world it has always been the people that leave a lasting impression and are the icing on the cake of the whole experience. In this regard Asia has blown me away with the kindness, welcome and warm hearts…

Time for a few drawings

Time for a few drawings

I am constantly scribbling something in a sketchbook.  So here are a few drawings from my first sketchbook of this trip.

Inktober challenge

Inktober challenge

It’s Inktober time again which means an ink drawing a day for the whole of October. To be honest its not really a difficulty its more of a pleasure. I was a little late starting as I had a nasty bug for the first couple of days of the month but I’m getting back on track now. There are some set prompts provided for subject matter for the drawings but I have just gone with whatever is around me each day that seems interesting for some reason. On Thursday I am off on my next adventure so the drawings should get increasingly interesting as the month goes on…I hope anyway!

 

So here is the first instalment.

Just over a week ago I was in Bournemouth catching up with lots of different friends but managed one day entirely to myself which turned out to be a proper treat. I spent a good chunk of it on the beach swimming and soaking up…

More Drawing India

More Drawing India

Once I was home from India my head was buzzing with ideas and possibilities. I just felt like I needed to make big drawings. There is something very physical and all encompassing about working on a large scale, the simple movement and gestural mark making creates a real tangible connection with ones soul. Anyway suffice as to say I enjoyed the process so much eleven large drawings emerged.

  

A problem I always have is titles. These drawings were going to be exhibited and needed names. In the end I went with some poetry that I read whilst in India (which is actually chinese) but for me the connection was there through the descriptive words and the place I discovered it, it just seemed to work. Each drawing has a line of poetry written in pencil somewhere on its surface. The whole series is called ‘Openings’ which represents both the physical imagery as well as what happened in my head while in India.

It was such a delightful pleasure to draw as I traveled around India. Everywhere you turn there is something interesting. The shapes, colours, patterns and people all provided a wealth of material.    SaveSave
