At the end of September we were so lucky to have a warm and sunny week in Swanage in Dorset, warm enough to swim in the sea and to take a trip on the steam train to visit Corfe Castle.

  I took quite a few pictures of the holes in walls, gaps to look through and old window casements.  I have put some of these through apps on the ipad and then am gradually adding them to a sort of album/journal. Drawing on and around the photos is influenced by Lisa Congdon’s line drawing and the work of Duane Michals.

Starting some sort of journal like this is highly to be recommended, you can doodle in it when you have a ‘down’ time or just feel stuck and it really is therapeutic. Don't forget that you are able to click on the images to see them in more detail.


  1. I like the plum color! NICE depth and so INTERESTING!

  2. Doodling is good for the soul!....and I love your pages Jackie!

  3. Absolutely love this especially your line extrapolation.

    Love the integration of the art with the photographs - and a fabulous palette.

  5. I really liked the juxtaposition of the photos and your doodling. Somehow the graphics become a part of the landscape/ architecture you have represented. The photos are enhanced not through digital means but through your hand. I like the idea of this sort of alteration :)


Comments are always much appreciated. Thank you.
