A ten day trip to Northern France

imageimageCalais, France imageWell, having just posted a picture of my dog I decided it was really time to catch up with my blog.  So, recently we took a trip to Northern Fance in our new motorhome.  The weather was cold but we were cosy warm in our insulated van.  We had a wonderful time and the key word was ‘leisurely’.  We did not drive very far but we walked and watched the world go by.  Brilliant.

So here is A peek inside my art travel journal.

All in all, we decided this was the way we liked to travel.  No set destination and the only timescale set by the outward and return ferry times.

Drawing Pippin our dog

I’ve been away for a long time from my blog but just sat down to draw my dog.  Quite pleased with the result.  I drew it on paper I had printed using acetate sheet for the faux gelli plate.  But I am not quite sure what to do with it now!

I have been doing lots of painting and drawing but not posted anything.  I think I really ought to catch up with all I have been doing.

Anyway, here is a photo of the drawing.  I hope you like it.
