I desperately needed the therapeutic, decompressing assistance of some art time yesterday so I made some time and cracked open the pages of my neglected art journal. I had not experimented with any of the items in my December Art Snacks box so I reached for that and decided to see what emerged on the page. As is so often the case, what I drew was a female figure. I gave her completely unrealistic anatomy as far as the arms are concerned (I have literally no idea why) and, thanks to the nature of the media in the box, I kept the figure monochromatic. The pop of colour came from a bold red, chunky paint pen. The nib was much larger than I am used to working with so attempting leaves was probably – definitely – a challenge too far. However, leaves aside, I am pleased with how the page turned out and am definitely pleased that I was able to benefit from some time at my art table.
