Sometimes when I am busy working on other things, I get out of rhythm with my own illustration practice.
To get back into it I have been playing around with my beautiful Eco-friendly paints.
I like just playing with mark making to get my creative juices kick started. Its such a good way of freeing up any restrictions or hesitations you might have and also you can get some really nice compositions out of it.
Some of these are nice on their own, and some I will like to draw on and others I will scan and see if I can incorporate them into some illustrations.
Anyway, here are some of my favourite mark making, colour and pattern pieces.
