Here are some examples of my arty-crafty work

Maltese House II - with colour
For sale as part of Aberystwyth Printmakers Print Appeal
Detail of etching exhibited at MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) Wales in Machynlleth
Etching, black & white print - I am clearly obsessed with doors
print samples and learning journal from Wood Cut print course
Linocut prints including portrait of Leslie in a bar!
My stencil "Sunbathers" on Aberaeron rocks, potting compost that actually kept its shape for a week
Detail of one of the Sketch Books I have made on a local course. Very satisfying but I am wary of actually using it
Detail from one of the felt bags featured in the latest Felt Making book. It was a commissioned piece in colours chosen by client
2 different types of print plates ready to use on one large piece of paper
The same wood cut plate as the previous one, this time called "Golden Haze", plus gold leaf, so very different effect
Still life pen & ink drawing from my sketch book, part of the Aberystwyth University Still Life course 2020
Framed etching "Gossamer Haze" as exhibited at MOMA Wales
woodblock print - very small - called "Moonlight". The moon was actually a happy accident as it was where there was a hole in the press plate!
This is my original logo for Pen Coed Textiles - a fabric collage with moon in background and reflections in the pool at the bottom
A different collage part of land art. Called "3 miles in 30 days", it is a collection of bits collected from the roadside on 3 mile stretch between Llwyncelin and Aberaeron over 30 days
Completed the Domestika online course on Architectural drawing with Watercolour and Ink so here are a few of the images from that. I always like to use pen and ink for sketching, and watercolour, but am not really good at the perspective thing!
It was an enjoyable course so even if you already use these techniques there may be one or two tips that you haven't thought of before. One of the things I find most difficult is how big the angles can be when showing the perspective lines from a corner of a building.
There are lots of online courses to try, but do like the Domestika.com site. October is Sketching Month apparently, so I thought it was time to get back into the habit of regularly sketching and joined up. There is a prize draw at the end if you submit an image every day, but as I am unlikely to actually win anything, this is just for me. 31 Days 31 Drawings
After a hesitant start, I soon got back into using my favourite pen and ink wash with some watercolour added. Even better, I decided to work through my photobook "Inspiring Doors" which is intended to be an Art resource . Here are a few examples so far, all of them drawn in my hand-made sketch book. See lots of images on their site #DMSTK31dias31dibujos
