the sea...

...underneath the waves of the sea, live some fish and a lion drawing mister. mister john thought he would have a go at drawing lions and his are the two in the top left corner. he even attempted to draw the back of a lion! you may have to click on the image to see it better as some of these drawings are a bit faint as i am struggling to find a nice grade of lead that scans in nice and easy. i use mechanical pencils to draw with and finding refills are a problem at the moment. i am trying out a rotring one at the moment - not one of their expensive ones mind. i quite liked drawing the fish but the earlier ones at the top of the page to me look too technical, i think the spotty and stripy ones are best. i am going on holiday at the end of the month and i am so looking forward to drawing abroad while we try to find nemo in the sea. maybe we may see a robot fish in its natural habitat?

just to add...i am not addicted to cider, though pear cider tastes nice, i do like a bottle of it, the amount of bottles drawn on these pages do not represent the amount of bottles drank.

:D I like the stripy fish...they look like they're wearing prison uniforms (did they get done for aiding and abetting the robber bird?)
What type of pencil leads do you need? I got a pack of 0.5 ones, HB I think, and my pencil is a 0.7 so they're no good - if that happens to be the right size, I'll bung them in with the parcel that I am sending you :D
