A very happy new year to all my friends in blogland! Hope everyone has a prosperous - in all senses of the word - 2009.
I haven't been posting much art recently and that's because I've been in a bit of a slump, which is usually brought on by too many ideas oddly enough. Sometimes I get so many creative 'must do' notions running round in my head that I get paralysed with indecision over where to start and what to do first, so I end up doing nothing at all. It is starting to pass now (I hope!) and I just began a new drawing yesterday as you can see.
Well you know how fascinated I am by architecture and I've been wanting to draw this house for a while. It's called Troldhaugen and was the residence of the composer Edvard Grieg in Bergen in Norway. I was thinking I might do some notecards with this line drawing on maybe, actually I rather like the graphic quality of it so I'm undecided as yet about whether to add paint or more ink. Hmmmm.
