Happy Sunday everyone!
I came home the other day to find that my boyfriend Sam had bought me a new scanner as a surprise. We had been talking about getting one since the last one bit the dust after falling off a chest of drawers - they don't bounce!
Anyway, I needed one to scan artwork and designs ready for printing and I'm very happy with the quality of the scan. For those who are interested, it's an Epson Perfection V370 Photo and seems good at colour and black and white scanning, as well as photocopying text.
I finished off a few doodles this week so put the scanner to the test!
I've been interested in the artwork of doodle artist Kerby Rosanes and Lei Melendres recently - their clean lines, detail and style of shading have really inspired me.
This was started sat on the beach, watching Sam fishing. I included everything I could think of at the time, from mussels and birds to cupcakes and puppies!
This next doodle was introduced in last week's blog post but with one thing and another I took a while to finish it.
Both doodles contain many of the same elements.
I can't help including the chunky little octopus, he's so much fun to draw!
A few people have suggested that I colour them in, but I'm not sure if that will take away from the lines and detail. I think I'll give it a go with my next one.
If you are interested in commissioning any artwork, including portraits, doodles or paper cuts, please don't hesitate to get in touch via the 'contact me' section (tab at the top).
I also have a giveaway running pinned to my Facebook page, don't forget to enter!
I'll leave you with a few photos from my weekend, it's been glorious here in North Devon!
