Drawing twenty-seven – Through the Woods

I often doodle trees with strange creepers and flowers… No doubt psychologists would have a field day…

And finally….

Drawing twenty-eight – Firegoose

I was looking for something to do for the last day and noticed the kangaroo motif on my didgeridoo, and tried to do something in a similar style. Not sure I managed but I liked the continuous lines.

Hooray! Hope you’ve enjoyed my 28 Drawings Later – it’s been fun!

Drawing twenty – The Love Supreme project – layer two

A second 34 minutes on the Love Supreme project. Some nice new rhythmic devices coming in. I got rather taken in by the bass solo at the end of part 3 which is where the verticals came from.

Drawing nineteen – Mercury cast II

Another (and final sadly) week on this. An interesting technique I will almost certainly use again.

Drawings sixteen to eighteen

Got a bit behind this week, so three daily doodles for the price of one!

Drawing sixteen – tree doodle

Any similarity between this and the Conservative party logo is unintentional and deeply regretted.

Drawing seventeen – Karma Chameleon

Drawing 17 - Karma Chameleon

Drawing eighteen – Germania doodle

On the theme of bad five-minute copies of art I have around my desk, this time a bit of Johann Friedrich Overbeck’s ‘Italia und Germania’.
