Restraint 

Abstract Art -Pen & Marker drawing - by Hannah Goodwin

I thought I’d share an older drawing with you today. I drew this one a few years back – around 2012. This drawing is unusual for me in that I left heaps of white space. Somehow I managed to just add a few details and then put the pens away – whereas normally I’d try and fill in every last space. I was going to say that I’ll try do more of this in the future, but, well… I probably wont. At least I can work on being a little more intentional with my use of empty space.

I want to live by the sea

A couple of weeks ago i had a long weekend so i headed up to my parents bach (that’s Kiwi for beach house). It’s winter over in this part of the world which meant i ended up spending a large chuck of my weekend hiding inside drinking tea & finishing drawings while i listened to sound of the rain and the waves. Sigh. I love the beach in winter. Anyway here’s one of the drawings i managed to finish.

Pencil

I decided to do a pencil drawing for a change. It’d been ages since my last one and about half way through i remembered why. Soo much unintended smudging. After a whole lot of tidying up with an eraser here’s the finished drawing:
