Have been working towards a more expressive approach in my drawing. What do you think?

Not much time for art this week so threw myself back in with some charcoal today. I see this one as someone or something emerging from shadow... or clarity from confusion.

Had to break up my colour studies with some drawing. These two feel like tribal elders, in mid-discussion 😄 As I was working, my feeling was that some of the patterns were scars from wounds received long ago, while other patterns felt like sacred markings. What do you see in these drawings?

Finished all my homemade mini sketchbooks and papers. I have a set made with acrylic paint, another with watercolour, and another with ink. Lots of different backgrounds for my drawings 😊

A drawing from my sketchbook... transferred to watercolour paper. Will be adding colour as soon as the ink is dry. .

Rough week with new anxiety medication not working out. Couldn't draw for days... so glad to get back to my sketchbook. Despite this bump in the road, things are going well, and I feel an inner energetic shift has occurred. I've been more assertive about my needs as an autistic person... and I can see these changes in the drawings I did. Two halves of myself coming together, and the warrior stance of claiming a space where I can express my feelings and experiences.

Regurgitation isn't just for birds.

People and music were everywhere... there were traffic sounds, cars honking, sunlight bouncing off windows, super bright colours, movement of all kinds... disorienting as they all competed for my attention. Any awareness of boundaries between me and the outside world broke down. I felt like a tiny atom being forcibly dragged through the environmental current around me.

Still working on watercolour versions of my drawings. In the meantime, here's a landscape of relationships... seen through pattern. The inner and the outer, unexplored territories, harmonious connections bring peace.
