Move and Fly and Soar: Days Seven and Eight

30 Days of Get Your Ar On

I have been practicing using “pebblyism” (thanks to Clare for coining this term!) to give dimension to my drawing with this pepper pot:

And today I have had a little play in my art journal, adding a couple more colours to the lilac spread I showed you before, as well as some words and images cut out from an old physics book for kids:

    A physics text? Awesome!! My DH is a physicist, and I’m always attracted to the use of science-themed materials in artwork 🙂

      Me too! My parents were both science teachers, before they retired. I have very fond memories of some science-themed stencils we had, with test tubes and whatnot ;-). Maybe I’ll see if my mum still has them!

  2. I really like pebblyism!! Beautiful work. Sharon

  3. I never heard of pebblyism but it definitely gave depth to your wonderful pepper shaker. I hadn’t seen your lilac spread before but it’s lovely. The stitching is fantastic and I love that bit from the physics book — so appropriate for the swirling mystery on your page. Thank you for visiting my blog!

  4. Love your pebblyism 🙂 Never heard of it but its good 🙂

      Thanks Hope! Pebblyism isn’t a real word (as far as I know) – see my reply to Jessica. It’s a bit like pointillism but bigger I guess 😉

    Ooops, “Pebblyism: n: Larger form of Pontillism. I think I have ‘Coined a term’, hehehe.

  6. Mary Walker says:

    I’m into the stitches coming through from the other page.

  7. Pebbilism. What do you think of that spelling? Love the technique! As a lover of pattern I can’t wait to get out my ink pen and give it a try. Thanks!

I will reply to comments here on the blog, so please check back if you are looking for a response! I love hearing from you x
