just lurking

Hello lovely friends of the internet, I’ve missed you, where have you been?

I haven’t posted in a little while due to an absence of images.

This is the coming together of a doodly thing I did a few weeks back

Watercolour and fountain pen,  intricate and involved but in a stilted inhibited style, so I left it there

My creative mojo has dropped off temporarily, the tide’s gone out, so I’m patiently waiting it out.

Meanwhile, I wish you all a beautiful Solstice, whatever that means to you. Be well, lovely souls X

  1. Hello, Carrie lynn.

    I love y’r colors and forms.


    I’m interested in y’r characterization of this latest [lurking] set of works as being in a stilted inhibited style.

    If you can and would care to, I’d like to know more of what you mean by stilted inhibited.

    Only thing I note is perhaps ‘crowded’ but I still love it!

    Y’r [new?] ol’ Bud, Fike


    1. HI there Fike 🙂 What I meant was that the lines weren’t as easy flowing as my usual style. I often work in this crowded way, but with a more free looking movement. Perhaps I’m reflecting how I felt at the time I made this (there’s no escape our feelings, right ? They escape through the pen!)
      Thanks for your lovely words 🙂


  2. Hello there.

    I’d love to know more about the processes and techniques you used to create these images.
    They look so magnificently detailed.

    1. Hi Jenn, thank you so much! This piece was done with a water pen and koh-i-noor dye (?) water colours. They’re lovely vivid pigments which reactivate when dried and rewet, so I went back with the water pen to add more detail . The finer lines are fountain pen (dark and red). The process was a sort of meditation, no plan or expectation, just doodling 🙂

  3. Oh maybe your mojo has retreated for awhile but these doodles are just so beautiful. It will come back you know it happens to all of us. Glad to see you back. I missed you!


  4. Lovely! Sometimes these become your first layer of a rich and complex piece. I like the freshness of the white. A clean clear start back into the flow. Good to see you out here again eph.
