Hello and Happy New Year!  Well the first week is pretty much done.  It's been a good one I have to say pretty busy but lots of fun.
So I had a little break from my regular life over Christmas and whilst at home I got some time to get the sketchbook out.  I was quite excited about this as this is something i rarely get time to do. Most evenings are taken up and so sitting in front of the telly doodling is something i don't do very often.  This was my opportunity.  It was pretty freeing to just draw away doing whatever i decided to do at the time,  and I ended up creating lots of patterns.  I only had limited supplies with me so that restricted what I could do also.  I have to say i thoroughly enjoyed it.  Hopefully I'll be able to carry on this way of working.  I do use sketchbooks but they are always more for ideas and thumbnails than anything else, pretty messy.  Having a bit of time gave me the luxury of creating a potential pretty page :).  Here are some of my favourites.

The last one I did whilst watching The great Gatsby.  I'd never seen it and I loved the party scenes!
Have a good week! :)
