This is a charcoal sketch I did the other night. When I first tried charcoal, I didn't like it at all. I now love it. I have done a few sketches with the charcoal and they always turn out nice. I like the look and the simplicity of the lines I use with charcoal and the drawings just seem to flow onto the page.

Here is one of my very first drawings. Looking for something to draw can sometimes be a challenge in itself at this early stage. I sat the boot on the table in front of me and drew. I like it alot. I took alot of time to do it and the end result is worth the effort. It makes me think I can draw anything if I put my mind to it.

First day back at RMH since october 2004. So first go at drawing anything from here. There is just as much to draw here as there is at Footscray. Not much!! Here I have drawn a pencil sketch of an office chair and a little fluffy dog next to a shifter. The doggy came with the McDonalds lunch one of the other guys bought. I coloured these drawings with water colour when I got home. Click on the image to enlarge.
This is a quick pencil sketch I did while the guys were catching some baby fish for bait. Visiting Mallacoota, a small fishing town on the eastern coast of Victoria, Australia, to do a spot of fishing. Well Lindsay was there to fish, I was there to draw, paint, and relax. I sat on the rocks further up the beach, drew and coloured on site. I really enjoyed the whole experience and wish I could do it much more often so that I could get better at it. I actually like the childlike feel of this drawing.

This is one of my first drawing since I started drawing in November 2004. I decided to draw something every day from January 2005 to improve my skills. There is not much to see where I work though and this power drill was just sitting there...begging..! So I drew it. It must have been on a day when the bosses were off because as you can clearly see, I have taken my time with this one. Its just graphite (2B) on a small visual diary. Easy size to pop into my work bag.
