An artwork update – enjoying the journey

Even though I’ve been out of action a couple of weeks, I have found a little bit of drawing has been quite restorative. This is a drawing from back in April but it has been inspiring me a great deal over the last month or so.

I’ve pondering this direction with my artwork. Lovely, detailed pencil drawing rendered with beautiful inks. I think the technique of being loose with the ink really lends itself to my style and process. I am enjoying the inks and also developing my drawing skills.

Drawing has a really mediative quality. I find that as I find myself relaxing into a drawing I become more relaxed. Sometimes it’s an effort to calm down but it’s well worth it, both for my mental state and the artistic outcome.

I am really enjoying this direction at the moment. But I am also pondering how to bring everything I’ve been working on, in the last year or so, together. It’s an exciting process, and for once, I am enjoying the journey.

Hope you are too! JP
