Who needs oil on canvas
When the simplest of pleasures
Works it’s way on to the paper
With simple tools such as coloured pencil
When pressure is gently applied
Wiry shapes on the fallen leaves
Will appear…bringing the image of the leaf back to life

A post for the weekly photo challenge –
Things reused for not what they were supposed to be…
This can be illustrated nicely in my office cum bedroom
Its a Tin, an old biscuit tin….regular readers of my blog might recognise it – but a couple of Christmas’s ago, it held much more than the mere coinage than it does today…
its contained everything from creamy vanilla fudge to chocolate mints.
but today? its a container for my spare change – the odd coppers that end up in my pockets of my trousers and coats. when its reasonably full – i’ll take it down to the local coin machine and pocket the proceeds…which I might spend on a box of fudge or chocolate – and being empty, the tin will be re used again
I was given this tankard on my 21st birthday. Now although I drink beer occasionally, I don’t drink it on a regular basis – and i’m more likely to drink out of a pint glass than a tankard. So, instead of my tankard gathering dust on a shelf (or more likely, collecting windswept desert sand from the nearby Trafford road) I’ve put it to some kind of good use,holding the art materials that I use to create drawings and such you might see on here 🙂 there maybe a time it gets reused as a pint pot – but it’ll be well cleaned before I use it for that ! 🙂
Pens and Pencils
Some say, I’ve got a young bill Shakespeare to thank for the
ink drop blog you see before you
although I’d say I’m not at his standard yet..
i will freely admit, I’m no professional .the recognition my work has received has been gracefully accepted
depending on the media used, I use a combination of computer art, digital photography as well as film , craft work and drawing
the pencils pens scraper tools and ink pens have produced a variety of works…some scattered about this site.
regular readers will know, my writings a bit wobbly. So after putting the scribble in one of my coloured notebooks..post process takes place either on the compaq desktop or my windows laptop.
right now though I’m typing this post out on my new acquisition from Currys. Tapping out a blog page on an IPad mini.
but I’ll always return to my craft tools at hand….
about my notebooks you will find the link below.
