At the De-stress drawing group we had an easygoing meeting with a nourishing theme of embracing the autumn colours and leaves, enjoying the changing spectrum of colours and textures at this time of year, refreshing our senses 🍂🍃🍁
We started with some fun doodling of shapes within shapes. Some of us drew with pens and pencils with white paper and Blair and others used pastels and black paper for a striking and textural effect. Blair gave a demo showing how to combine some mixed media of watercolour pencils, brushed with water, and oil pastels.
It was nice and chilled doodling, with a fun feel of Halloween on the way too!
We had some inspiration from a poem by Sogi –
Bushes bend toward earthSogi
Before Snowy daybreak
A storm passes
In the garden moonlight
Night growing cold
