I simply enjoy the challenges of drawing, painting, printmaking and photography. My inspiration is derived from many different sources, but mostly all from places, events and emotions I have actually experienced, and from my family and other people I have met and loved.

    Beautiful work Elaine

  • Thank you so much, Phil. Scribbler is so much fun to work with……..it’s a great filler-in when there’s no time to set up with paints, rollers, presses, etc, and I love drawing. This is just a different challenge.

    If you have no time to make a print (for example, because you have to burn your dinner) it must be a great alternative to use this scribbler tool. You use it with the skills and vision of a printmaker. The textures, the layering, the melting colors: it is a digital print. Love it. So magical.

  • Well, one dinner already burnt to a cinder has taught me not to start anything drawing/art related ever again once I’ve put the dinner on to cook! Had to throw out the fry pan and all…………. But yes, it is a great alternative creative outlet when time is extremely limited, and it’s a whole heap of fun. I reckon you’d get a lot out of playing with Scribbler as well, Martin.

    Love the title!
    He is gorgeous Elaine!! I esp love the reeds, so delicate. And the reflections are soft and that is so cool to produce them in Scribbler too.

  • Thank you Marion. He’s a version of the prints I recently did of ducks, as you probably already realised, but trying him out with Scribbler was quite and experience. Still, nothing can beat that excitement of pulling the print paper off the plate and crossing your fingers that it’s worked.
