Meet Granny Minch. . .

Is Granny Minch, hiding the little present.... or is she having a sneaky peek?  

If someone had told me three years ago I would be drawing characters like the last few that have popped up in my sketchbook lately, I would have laughed and told them "Not Possible" or as in my family we like to say "Pot Nossible!"  

I put my progress down to several things.... 1. I draw everyday, actually every spare minute. 2. I really look at objects and their shapes, whatever it is... 3. I get inspiration from other peoples work and incorporate the bits I like in my artwork. 4. A huge turning point has been doing Jane Davenports "Supplies Me"  and "I heart drawing" online courses. I've watched, listened, practised, and made a mess for the last few months..... I've mixed it all up, given it a huge big shake..... and tadah...voila...... something rather nice is happening to my drawings... I'm liken it!

Yes I have seen the progression of your work over the last 18mths (I know it has been more than a year since I first found your blog but I do not think it is quite 2 LOL ) and it gets better and better.
Love the granny, she has such character.

Not sure whose turn it is to write LOL, but if you are going to do it, I will wait :)
