Draw #everyday

On January 17, 2014, Posted by , With Comments Off on Draw #everyday

Traditional drawing is a big part of what I do. It is my core. It is an ideas factory. If civilization ever collapsed, we can still draw with implements and mark-making materials. It is a primal expression and I believe traditional drawing is here to remain even with our digital futures.

I draw every day, even if it is just a doodle. I will keep posting new doodles, and sketches here. I also often go urban sketching so you will see these too. I encourage you to go out there and draw too! Contact me info@jamesabellart for drawing lessons to free you up and achieve your own unique expressive voice.

The drawings here are available here to buy as original and prints on request.

You can also commission me to make drawings for you for special events such as weddings, film/tv etc.

23rd September – Drawing Portobello Beach Edinburgh

Today, I went sea swimming at Portobello beach in Edinburgh. The water in September and October is the “warmest” time and with some light neoprene you can still do open water swimming. After the swim, it was time to do my daily sketch. I was fairly cold so the drawing was quick. Sometimes, when we are uncomfortable, cold, tired, hungry etc this is when our drawings can be more spontaneous.

Again in Waverley Station, Edinburgh just after rush hour. Interesting time. People are often tourists, backpackers etc at this time and the low sunlight at this time of year makes for great inspiration.
