Labrador, A Work in Progress, Copyright Laura Hardie 2011
Yet another long delay between posts, not good but I do have a reasonably good excuse – I’ve not been drawing and so had nothing to show. And I didn’t think you would want to know about my life away from the drawing board – that could have been a long post with nothing to look at! When I say I haven’t been drawing what I probably should say is I am not putting in the hours I normally do and instead working a little bit here and an even littler (grammatically incorrect I know but I like it:)) bit there when the mood takes me – waiting on my motivation to come back as it seems to have gone. Think I need to get out and about with my camera more to give me inspiration.
In the meantime I’m going to continue working away on my latest Lab, see above. Again this is pencil on Mellotex paper, my paper of choice recently, but I’m starting to dislike working on it and need to try out other papers – think it’s maybe just too smooth for my liking and I’m missing the tooth you get with hot pressed watercolour paper. I still have a paper not dissimilar to Mellotex that I want to try. Only small pieces as they were samples sent to me by another artist so maybe a small drawing next.
Before I go I must tell you about my website as I’ve had several emails enquiring where it has gone. I’d been thinking for some time about changing my domain name and have now done so. I think I have updated everywhere I can think of with my new address but incase I have missed somewhere it is now http://www.laurahardie.com. A few changes been made to it too.
