Past the finish line...

Yup, February is the month to do a challenge. Four perfect weeks to write four blogs (unless it's a leap year). It was a challenge mostly for myself but perhaps next year I'll have a few folk to doodle along with me.

It all started because I needed to use up my collection of Sharpies which I hadn't touched for a year or so. And yes, I did buy more permanent markers - couldn't resist them, the colours were just too nice. A fold-out pack of 36 permanent markers by BIC with dependable pointed tips (fine) across the set and the fumes aren't quite so strong.

Each marker has a grip and they are individually named with such quirky titles as: Tiki Hut Tan, Rambunctious Red and Fandango Pink. The range of colours were better than I could find in the Sharpies so I think BIC might be my new fav cheapy permanent markers.

Next seven pieces:

I'm very satisfied with what's come out of this challenge. I feel I've developed a few different styles of using markers and am curious to see how that translates into paint. This past year I've been wanting to use paint more - I trained as a painter and identify as such, although markers (permanent, acrylic or Indian ink) are a quick method of getting an idea onto paper.

So that's February over, #februdoodle @bloowabbit was good fun and I greatly appreciate all the 'likes' and comments left on my fb, Instagram and twitter pages. It's always interesting to read what friends think of my doodling. 

Off to buy a new sketchbook...
