Here are some of my 2015 life drawings they are mainly soft pastel and some Chinese ink mixed with pastel drawings ..I feel the need to try different mediums with my life drawing and one of them is watercolour ..would be a nice change from the black ink to the colour inks..



















mixed media drawings


Last term I decided to experiment with paper surfaces. I prepared the papers before drawing the nudes on top. There is the danger of the drawing not looking good and therefore just a waste of  material, time and energy, also of the paper surface being overwhelming and taking over the drawing.. these are the risks we have to take to try new ideas and not getting bored with the same old ways of drawing. Not sure if I would like a busy surface to draw on top all the time but these experiments helped my creative process and enriched my work 
   ...Bellow are the results...

April/2015 London group art exhibition

I had one of my work exhibit in central London last month...just thought I would register this in here .. The photographer was Caroline who was kind enough to take these lovely pictures and was there supporting my work together with the other lovely ladies.. I was moving home at the same time so didn't have time to  invite as much people as I would have loved too but I really enjoyed it and met some lovely and very good artists there too.

few pastels and ink

 Back to my pastels again..but just for a short while as soon I will be experimenting with new things. I need to try different things otherwise I get bored or too comfortable with my old way of doing things, also need inspiration to enrich my art and to grow.
