When I got back into business, selling my pictures, I thought I should surf the net to see what others were doing in the pen & ink world. To be honest, the standard didn't seem that high, but then I chanced on http://melissabtubbs.blogspot.com/ Now Melissa Tubbs pen and ink work is totally brilliant. I won't say any more, just use the link and judge for yourself.
I saw that Melissa had a number of followers and, as I have been away from blogging for years,I assumed they were all pen & ink artists. Wrong! I randomly selected one, Carrie Waller, and the world became technicolour.
Carrie is a fantastic painter just visit http://carriewaller.blogspot.com/ and wallow in the luxury of the colours.
Every Friday Carrie does a brilliant interview with an artist, where, besides discussing their artwork, she delves into their history, development etc ...it's really well done and well worth marking in your diary.
This week Carrie interviewed Sandra Busby who lives at http://www.sketch-mad.com/ .... and her work is fantastic..... can you see where this is going?
If I'm not careful I'm going to be a Groupie - is that the modern term? I'm 74 don't forget ... perhaps I should stick to being a fan.
Now you ought to go and see the 'Busby Bears' they really are wonderful.
