Pr2-Ex 1: Line Drawing in Detail

I really enjoy line drawing. It’s relaxing to do and the results are oftern effective. Here I chose some select flowers form an arrangement. It was nice to follow the lines with my eyes, really explore the shapes.


About Emma Perring

Artist, oil painter


  1. Absolutely love this, Emma. The two colours work brilliantly and create depth… hard to do in a pure line drawing. The drawing itself is beautiful, too. Thanks for ‘following’ me here – looking forward to having a good look ’round your blog. 🙂

    • Thanks Mags,
      We appear to be in about the same place on the course so I’ll be keeping an eye on your blog too. Seems like such a long way to the end! Are you intending to do a full degree?

      • That’s the plan, Emma, although I think time will be one of the deciding factors. I do find that everything takes far longer than the college seems to anticipate… although I could just be slow! That said, I am learning, which is all I wanted from the course. As long as that continues, I’ll do my best to carry on. Are you planning to do the degree?

      • Hi Mags,
        Yes, I too am planing on a degree. I want to do painting and print making in the future. I know what you mean about things taking longer than you think. I know I am a slow worker! But I think for any one it would be time consuming. Things are a bit bizzy for me at the mo so must be strict with myself to do some OCA stuff in the evenings. Finally finished the stippling I’v been putting off.
