I hold my breath when I draw....

laughing here....

it is one of those days for me - and by that I mean I have a monstrous neck/headache - that usually means I can't even hope to do anything creative other than drawing in my moleskin sitting quietly with a heating pad on my neck.  I've been to physio this morning so I am hopefully on my way to feeling better in the next day or two. 

so I am sitting here drawing and my head keeps pounding - worse than before I was drawing - and I realise that I hold my breath when I draw.  heh. not exactly the best thing for a headache - so I am attempting to stop that habit.  drawing distracts me from my pain - and it's always good to learn new things.....even if that is learning to breathe while I draw ;)


  1. Wow! These are SO beautiful Emily, if only I could hold my pen as steady as this! :-)

    1. thank you Hanna!! I was always so scared to try this kind of drawing - straight to paper with marker without a pencil - but with some practise I got over my fear AND got steadier and more confident. I still hover over my next mark every once in awhile - steadying myself ;) and for the record - I've seen your drawings - they are wonderful!!
