Random Art at Various Stages of Completion


I frequently find half-finished projects around my house. Sometimes they’re forgotten; sometimes they’re not. But they’re always kind of beautiful. Today I thought I would share some of these.

Above is a lighthouse that I actually started this past weekend. I came across my chalk pastels and couldn’t wait to draw something. Unfortunately, I grabbed my watercolour book… not the best match for a light, chalky media.image

I like blending colours to create “PEI dirt” in my drawings. There’s something truly magical about that rusty shade of red. I can’t wait to spend more days at the beach in the summer to come.image

One of my absolute favourite things to draw is crustaceans. No joke, I can draw crabs, shrimp, lobster, and the like for hours. I like the angles and the asymmetry. I would love to have a room decorated framed with ‘scientific’ style crustacean drawings. Perhaps an upcoming project… :)


The last two are pretty random – a seahorse and a butterfly. Both are thick and childlike – lacking in my usual methodological detail. This is linked to the fact that I don’t know a lot about either, but think they are pretty cool. A little practice would go a long way here!
