Hi there!

Summer is drawing to a close, so I'm back on the internet again. Although I plan on spending less time here, I'm also curious as to what everyone's been up to :-)

I had such a great summer, enjoying the wonderful and exceptional weather, the long lazy days, reading books by my favorite authors, and yes, also drawing a bit. I didn't paint, I just didn't feel like it, and I even had to force myself to draw. Initially that is. Now I'm having fun trying to draw a little bit every day. I'm totally back into doodling. I'm planning on making a calendar with doodles, I already have 12 drawings, but they're all in different stages of progress, with none completely finished yet.

Here are some things that I did finish:

sketch ... (graphite and coloured pencils)

 and another one in my art journal with gelli-printed pages (graphite)

And here's a doodle that I did finish (not for my calendar):

And that's all I have to show for now!

Except for the funnies and thinkies of course. Enjoy ;-)

Linking to Paint Party Friday, and hoping to see lots of people there!

Thanks for your visit! Wishing you much joy today, and a happy and relaxing weekend!
Take care ♥ ♥ ♥

  14. Sounds like you had a wonderful summer. The weather here was great, too. I'm just getting back into the swing of being on the internet as well. The school holidays are such a busy time for me. I never can get a minute to do anything. Wonderful drawings and doodles. You have a very unique style.
