Hi, thank you for taking the time to look at my work.
I have been drawing now off and on for about 6-7 years. I am self taught and had no training of any sort.

Some of the materials I use are graphite pencils, sometimes charcoal stick or pencils. graphite and carbon powder, tortillions, paper stumps, kneaded erasers, tuff stuff eraser stick. mono zero erasers. Q tips. felt.

I have picked up a lot of tips from all sorts of people. I have met some wonderful people along the way. I have improved a lot since I first started, but still have along way to go.

I would really appreciate any feed back/comments you care to leave.

Thank you



White Horse
Drawn on A3 smooth Bristol board. Graphite pencils B 3B 5B 6B 7B Blue tac, and Tuff stuff eraser.
This was quite a challenge, kind of like working back to front, starting from outside working in. I am very pleased with the result. Hope you like it. Please leave a comment.
Pencil drawn on A2 smooth Bristol board. I had to take a pic of it to down load it. It hasn't come out that well, but its the best I could get.

 I have recently sailed on Tenacious in the Caribbean, from Antigua to Panama. It was an amazing adventure. I just had to do this drawing of her. I would highly recommend this to anyone. 

 This impressive 65m barque was launched in 2000 she was the largest wooden tall ship to be built in the UK for over 100 years. Her whole build process was unique and disabled and able bodied volunteers helped to build her, so she is greatly loved by her guest crews and supporters.
Unique British Design
Tenacious (and her smaller sister ship Lord Nelson) are the only two of their kind in the world that have been designed and built to enable people of all physical abilities to sail side by side on equal terms. 36 000 people have sailed on the two ships since they were built.
