Figure study 

Figure study on artset pro. Don’t know where I was going here.. Must revist:)

The natural movement of one’s soul is upwards. But just as any object is dragged down when a heavy weight is tied to it, the burden of the body drags down the soul.

Figure drawing artset pro

God I love life drawing 🙂 here’s another experiment!

 I hope you enjoy looking at her as much as I enjoyed creating her.

 Take from it what you will.. An image can speak different words to everyone, don’t you think?

Doodle fail 

This last weekend I stayed in Monart with my friends from school. yes we are still friends.. getting on now 😛 Its a long time since school ha

We spent two nights lazing about getting massages and relaxing. It was pure heaven. On one of these days relaxing I had my iPad out reading a book on my Kindle. I got bored and decided to doodle on my art set app. This is the catastrophe that happens when you have no stylus, no plan and are too comatose to function. Needless to say i gave up after 10 mins and admitted failure. Way to easy to do when the Thermal suites are calling. Haha Continue reading

Elephant doodles on artset pro

They say that somewhere in Africa the elephants have a secret grave where they go to lie down, unburden their wrinkled gray bodies, and soar away, light spirits at the end. -Robert R McCammon

  
If ever I am having a sucky day elephants cheer me up, they are my favourite creatures on earth 🙂 this quick “doodle” is done using Artset Pro. 

Thanks to Tracy  at Daily WIP for the reminder!  It’s nothing fancy just some art therapy really of a dreary Monday 😛

What’s your favourite animal? I’d love to know 🙂 

Added bonus pic is below of me being caretaker for a day in Chang Mai at Patara Elephant farm. They rescue and care for elephants, dream come true for me! They make you wear that extremely flattering outfit 😛

Out of Focus

Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them. – Jack Canfield

So I’ve been a little sick the last few months.. Loads of tests but so far no answer but viral infection… That pesky answer that gives you no answer. Unfortunate side effects of whatever is going on is fatigue,shaky hands, vertigo and vision problems- my eyes won’t focus together properly damn them haha

Why am I telling you this? Continue reading

5 min red sketch on Artset app

Red is a hard colour to draw on… Also I didn’t have my glasses on so details are very simple haha sometimes it makes thinks a little more interesting when you can’t see the full detail you are making 🙂 and sometimes it’s a mess when you put your glasses on lol

  

Oil pastel sketch

As for you girls, you must risk everything for Freedom, and give everything for Passion, loving everything that your hearts and your bodies love. The only thing higher for a girl and more sacred for a young woman than her freedom and her passion should be her desire to make her life into poetry, surrendering everything she has to create a life as beautiful as the dreams that dance in her imagination. – Roman Payne

  

God I’ve not tried the oil pastel for a while, this is on artset, quick sketch to test the waters, wanted to keep it quick, strong and dynamic.

More practice needed to get back in swing of oils, I’ve never favoured them really as I like the softness of pastel usually but it’s good to switch things up 🙂 bit of gel pain thrown in.. Just cause I felt like it lol
