My Mind’s Eye: Original Artwork

In addition to writing, I also create original artwork, mostly graphite sketches, chalk pastel drawings, and watercolour paintings. I do some decorative embroidery as well, but that takes for-bloody-ever to finish, so I don’t have much.

I started drawing as a kid and developed a pretty good sense for human faces, so a lot of my work up until the last few years has been pictures of people, real or imaginary.  My skills in watercolour painting have been evolving over the past year, and I recently started working with acrylic paints again. In particular, I have been learning to capture the flow and motion of water in various styles (realism, impressionism, post-impressionism), and I have developed a recent love for city-scapes.
