Barclay's free pens....



I am sorry to all my lovely friends who keep up with my blog that my post are not very regular. The excuse at the minute is I am constantly busy with Uni homework. It took me all day yesterday selecting, rejecting and mounting my work on to 24 A2 sheets of cartridge paper, ready for presentation for Drawing for Textiles.  I have one detailed drawing left to do plus ongoing sketchbook work for this module but its more or less in the bag. I now have to do the same for Creative Thinking and Textiles. The deadline for completion is the 13th January 10am ready for assessment under exam conditions. Now its seems a long way off but I know if I don't keep on top of it I will run out of time and go into complete panic mode. After selecting and rejecting then mounting out came the sketch book because I wanted to draw this lovely flower. We where asked to use different types of mediums in drawing for textiles, I decided to have a go and draw with a Biro. Now you would think in a room full of pens, pencils and paints I would have umpteen Biro's but the only Biro I could lay my hands on was a freebie from Barclay's bank. I have to say this was a lovely pen to draw with it created really soft lines and it was a joy to use. I have decided that I will be picking up several of these pens next time I'm in the bank. The second image is the same flower only this time I have used water colour paints. It is not quite finished as I need to add bits of detail using water colour pencils.

That is a lovely drawing,,, I don't bank with that bank, otherwise I would have picked up a few pens for you. Have a peaceful Christmas. Cx

I will get some on Monday Caz when I go to pay some bills. They are in a plastic box thats says Help yourself to a pen. However, they do not have a lot of ink in them. Which is probably why they are free. All the best to you to Caz :) x
