#505 – Bush and pool

Here is just a quick doodle which I did while working by the poolside back home today…I was attracted by the contrast of the bush against the colour of the water…but I’m not sure if I really captured it.



#504 – Teapots and gate change

Another sketch on my way home – this one was done at the airport in Hong Kong. I was settled in a nice spot to do a sketch and just about to start when there was a gate change and I had to walk across the whole airport…I still had time to do this sketch at the new gate though…a display cabinet with teapots in it.


#503 – Superman is heartwarming at T3

Here is my last sketch in the UK for a while – as ever at the airport. To explain the title… which is a combination of things that occurred to me while drawing: the guy on the far right was wearing a superman outfit and someone came up to me and said how “heartwarming it was to see someone making something wonderful of a place like this”… I do love sketching in public, especially when people say things like that!


#502 – Couch

Having helped my daughter settle in to her room at University (in Sussex) on Saturday, an old friend kindly let me stay at her nice Victorian house in Brighton overnight. I doodled this while watching a Netflix movie before falling asleep.


#499 – Raining while I’m drawing

The weather hasn’t been so great recently – today I had spent only a few minutes in the little garden outside my parents house and it started raining….at least I got a moment to paint the clouds! I added pastel to this…my new sketchbook is encouraging me to go back to using some media I haven’t used in a while.
