Art supplies and other distractions

I am in a kind of software update purgatory today. I haven’t used my desktop machine for a few days,  so pushing the power switch was never going to be pretty. Software updates are like buses – they all seem to arrive at once; maybe it’s some sort of quantum thing.

Still – while the updates are installing I have a good excuse to play with some new art supplies.

Earlier in the week I was mashing up marker pens with coloured pencils. I thought it might be fun to bring some blendable,  alcohol-based markers into my experimenting, too. I haven’t used blendable marker pens before, so I’m really looking forward to getting stuck in and comparing the effects.

Back soon -most likely covered in ink stains! Happy weekend all 🙂
