After a three-year lapse, I enrolled in an art course. My first work was a drawing. I used pencil, charcoal, and Conté crayon. The subject was vegetables: silverbeet, aubergine and pumpkin.

I recently participated in a community art excursion. At Tuross Head, I drew Main Beach in my visual diary. Back at the lodge, I coloured in the drawing with brush and ink.

I exhibited my visual diary. And it was stolen from the gallery! So I got a cheque for its listed price.

Today's subject was a young Indian woman. So I shaded my representation of her cheeks. Using pens as ever, both dip and brush. People liked the colours that I used for her scarf.

Today's portrait was of a photographer. He wore headphones like a necklace. And he had one of those too! Plus big metallic ear-piercings. And a pair of glasses, mostly propped upon his forehead. On his wrists were a colourful plastic watch, and a rubbery orange bracelet.


I put lots of effort into colouring-in my representation of his face. A friend had commented on my previous portrait that I had over-emphasised highlights. So this time I worked on the shadows. Such as depicting the man's eye-sockets. And blackening my drawings of his glasses-frame and big headset earphones. An art tutor said that I was more free today.


Though I consider my drawing of the torso and arms to be little more than a big blob!


Still, I found that I put in a great effort. Even following the man around as he photographed and smoked outside!

Today at an art tutor's suggestion, I tried water wash over ink.

This evening I took my rolled-up package of pens to a computer club. And there, in my sketch book, I captured the likeness of the club's boss. Someone else said that my drawing made the man look gaunt! And the subject said that his image looked like his father.
