I plan to do a bit of Gelli plate printing and Annie brought me over a grapefruit and a lemon to print with. I decided to draw them before I cut them up. I used Matisse Yellow Deep ink and a dip pen. It’s quite a challenge using only the pen lines to achieve the tones. I could get them much more easily with a bit of water and a brush, but I don’t think I’d have the same long term gains.
The sun is out today (coldest July in 27 years so far) so I have the door open and some fresh air coming into my house. What shall I sketch today? I have to keep on sketching every day that I can because …………… we’re in single figures on the countdown to the giveaway.
