This latest batch of experiments were of the ‘I hate how these are going but I want to finish them’ variety. Layers upon layers of pure colours, built up to create similar compositions, one more balanced and the others focusing on each primary colour. They turned out better than I expected in the end and there are things I do like about them, but I think it’s pretty safe to say I’m glad this set of experiments are over. They are all part of the learning curve of exploration, however, and for that I am grateful:

I am still doodling. For the most part my ink drawings are done out of the house when I am in town with my notebook and ink pen. I am finding it to be a wonderful way to relax and get grounded, particularly in the mornings and evenings if I feel like I am in a bit of a muddle mentally.

This one is a page in my Midori Traveller’s Notebook. It began as a single flower and then morphed into a longer, full page design in black ink:
