Arwen's meanderings

Hi everyone and welcome to my new blog. My name is Steve and i am the lucky owner of a John Welsford designed 'navigator' named Arwen. I built her over three years with the help of my father, father-in-law and two children. She was launched in August 2007 at Queen Anne's battery marina in the barbican area of Plymouth. This blog is a record of our voyages together around SW England.
Arwen has a YouTube channel of her own. Search "plymouthwelshboy".

Doodling s

I am a doodler........if there is such a word.......a visual learner whose notebooks and records of meetings and lesson plans are full of meaningless doodles. I've been doodling on the iPad again. Plainly no artist whatsoever, it's nice to while away a few minutes. Boats I've seen. If nothing else tying to capture one recognisable element does make me look at them more closely and that gives me a better appreciation of form and elegance.



I just wish I could develop some artistic and photographic skills. Maybe these will be my retirement pursuits!

Artist? Who cares about being and artist? Your drawings are lovely! I like to draw boats myself. They are not as nice as yours, but they do please me anyway.

What app do you use, btw?

You are top of my forthcoming Christmas card list. What a kind thing to say. Thank you!
The programme I use is called 'paper'. It's a downloadable app. You can buy extension components for it as well.
