about four hours or so of fun...
...i love it when you start a piece of work and once you get stuck in it feels less like work. that is one of the reasons why i have always liked drawing. it is what you start to feel and think about if anything while you are drawing. it is exciting and you become lost in a world of your own. sheer concerntration without concerntrating. you create a place where you would like to be or visit. at this moment in time it is half two am and i had to post this now rather than later. i would love to sit under all these rainclouds and raindrops. i am finding that as i am beginning to do more and more work that i am discovering how much fun it is to keep a sketchbook. i feel less scared of drawing and i have bonded with the sketchbook this evening. i think i may have over worked this image but i dont really care as i feel i needed to get all the rain out that was inside otherwise it might fall out my eyes instead. i also sneaked in abit of Biro pen doodling in there as well. nina chakrabarti draws with Biro.

I like this Ladysnail! Did you draw it all? Just becuase the dark turquoise raindrop near the top right looks as if it's been printed. Great stuff anyway. x

Its great. :) Rain is a really good subject too, because there's so many types of rain - big fat sploshy rain, thin measly rain, rain that falls like mist then makes you all soaking wet before you know it (stealth rain)...
