Not everything is something

Sometimes I like to make a list just for no other reason than a list is something.

  • Sometimes I need to draw something that is nothing.
  • Sometimes I need to draw something without an end result.
  • Sometimes I need to not think and just draw and see what happens.

OK, enough said about something. And now I’ll write something about nothing I just said.

If you read my previous post you are aware that I have changed direction (as far as painting is concerned) and began the process of relearning watercolours.

To continue with the relearning process I created two images with an underlying watercolour wash using the same colour palette. 

The next step in the process was to add a drawing “on top” of the wash and use the underlying wash as an influencer on the final drawing/painting. 

I managed to do one of the two and hope to complete the second next week. The images are relatively small (about 5 X 7 in.). Time was somewhat limited this week. 😦

So back to my above statements about “not everything is something” I dug into my drawing archive and found some examples below of drawings I have done just for the sake of doing something (and I added some colour just for something extra on this page)

One of the benefits of just doing “something” is that sometimes you discover new things.


Also just for the sake of filling this page with more drawings I have also included feeds from “My Dailies” Instagram feeds.


As usual for those reading via email below is the header image from this post. Have a great week.
