Lazy, arty, Sunday afternoon

Angela Porter 10 June 2018 watermarked

I dug out one of my Lamy fountain pens, which had a black ink cartridge in it. I swapped the black for green, and drew this on some bristol board.

From time to time I dipped the nib in the black ink so I had some gradients and variation in the drawing.

It was fun to do. Also, it’s been a while since I drew with pen on paper; most of my work of late has been digital drawing, with the occasional pencil/pen sketch on paper.

I finished this today. Sakura Pigma PN pen in blue on A4 dot grid paper.

Note to self – use a dark coloured pen, not blue, on dot grid paper otherwise it’s going to be a nightmare to remove all the little dots on the drawing!

Remembrance

Poppies by Angela Porter small

It took me a couple of days to draw and colour these poppies rising through and floating on the green swirls.

It was a very intuitive drawing, and as I completed it I realised that the poppies are like memories, remembrances that rise with and float upon the currents of thoughts that flow through our conscious minds.  Sometimes they stay below the surface, not forgotten but resting, at other times they rise up singly or, as in this case, in a plethora.  Sad, painful even, in some cases, in others joyful.

Quite fitting as we leave Hallowe’en behind and move towards Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday.

I’ve added this design to products available in both my Vida Collection and my Zippi Portfolio.
