Ink and acrylic canvases and the Stirchley Market

So I spent a lovely crafternoon yesterday dusting off my acrylic paints and getting out those canvases I bought just in case I felt like making some physical (ie not on a computer) artwork again. I also got out my inks and quill and created some work to display at the Stirchley Community market- I'm heading off there in half an hour.

I'm hoping to make more stuff soon rather than just rely on digital files, honestly I can lose whole days doing this, I get so absorbed! The soundtrack I had on repeat was Metronomy's Nights Out album. So good to create art to!

I'll show you my work in progress here:

                                                    A work in progress.

                                                    A cramped work space!

The weather seems to be holding out for the market so I'm looking forward to being outside and eating curry, sampling general delights and selling my wares.
