Van

I love drawing on toned paper so I thought I’d try a coloured pencil drawing in a Strathmore toned paper sketchbook that I’ve been working in just occasionally for several years now. But I’m a little disappointed with the results. I had to work pretty hard to get my pencils to show up at all in this portrait of Van. I expected them to be much more vibrant on this paper. So I think I’ll be sticking with my Hannehmühle Nostalgie sketchbook. If anyone has had better results with a different toned paper sketchbook I’d be interested to know about it.

I love drawing things. These days I am rarely found without a pen, pencil or stylus in my hands. In my working life I spend a lot of time in meetings and classrooms, reading papers and strategies, so my home life provides a creative antidote to all that! I also have chronic pain, lots of it. I have scoliosis, fibromyalgia and CRPS, so my life is a balancing act, trying to balance work, which make me feel part of the real world, with pain, which is ever present, and art, which soothes my pain.
