A Series of Apples

Don’t carpet your rut, dixit Brenda Swenson.  Ne pas mettre de la moquette dans votre ornière.  Don’t get too comfortable with your usual way of doing things.  Ne pas se contenter de faire comme d’habitude. Choose a simple subject and do it as many different ways as you can.  Choisir un sujet simple et le faire avec autant de techniques que possible. Alors, je suis tombée dans les pommes.

Inktober 24-31, 2016

And so Inktober comes to an end for this year.  With 29 drawings, I attain a participation rate of 93.5%. Little by little, I think my crosshatching is improving.               I hope you have enjoyed seeing these drawings.  Maybe you will give it a go next year. *

Mandala xxx

I finished the Ramadan mandala; that went quicker than finishing the work on myself, ha.

Here is a link if you would like to read what I have written about Ramadan previously:


Otherwise, I will repeat myself.  I may do that anyway…..

I was playing with the scroll function on the mouse. It made the mandala seem to turn.
