So now for New Zealand it is Friday the 20th, and I am facing a 7 hour drive from Auckland to Havelock North.
So posting a pen & ink of my husband’s art work for Black & White Friday. I have another I want to photograph as well and will do that soon.
Im hoping to take some awesome photos on the way that I will be able to share with people on Virily. I really love being able to share beauty of nature and scenery and live stock with others.
When I did art as a child I loved drawing and painting people. I started taking photos because in New Zealand that is not what people want, they only want landscapes and to be honest, they did not attract my interest. So tried to get landscapes which were interesting.
Next thing I know, I began to sell some of my photos. All I am is a point and shoot photographer, but never the less they sold. I honestly did not think I could sell photos.
However, Warwick was one of the first artist who painted and drew landscapes that I like and he also draws people really well.
Let’s say, he has a “Spark”.
My advice, don’t worry if people think you are good or not, do something creative that interests you, just for fun. Don’t be too serious about it or you will lose it.

Another fantastic piece of art by your husband
Thanks so much Vidocka pleased you like it.
good luck on the journey! i do like your endpoint, it doesn’t matter what others think! Do things for yourself!
Thanks Doc, not much point about doing good in the eyes of people, when opinion can be fickle and you can’t actually make a living out of it.
i suspect that is why I am no longer helping people as much. I’ve been burned twice in the past three months.
I help those who want help or ask now!
Yes, I can understand why…
that doesn’t look like pen & ink to me, gonna have to call it graphite…
Thanks Alex I haven’t seen that picture for a while maybe its stored away somewhere here.
ink doesn’t have a range, it’s all or nothing
Yes, well we use a range of different size nibs, using Staedler pens, and sometimes use corrector fluid on it. I don’t use corrector fluid mostly.
just saying, that piece has a range of value so I don’t think it is ink
The most difficult to draw or paint is people’s faces. Whose face is that?
Im not sure, sometimes Grace I make the face up, and it is no one’s face.
Thanks for sharing your husband’s artwork.
Thanks so much Alex glad you like it.
Enjoy your drive and looking froward to more pics! This is very good.
Thanks so much Carol, it was a good drive and quite an adventure!
