#451 – Basketball players

I finally got outside to sketch yesterday. Here is a view of the common basketball court at our place. Everything seemed green (except for the rubbish bins)…even the court…so I kept the colours muted and used mostly greens and blues. I also added some chalk pastel for a change.

#449 – Red bowl

Here is a late night doodle. The AC in our living room drips sometimes so we use a bowl to protect the couch – and our heads. The highlights on the bowl are there by chance – when I closed the sketchbook the paint was wet and sticky and the pages got glued together. When I opened it a few bits of the surface ripped off – so I just coloured it back in! I think it really improved the sketch.

#435 – Crew plane passenger

Here is my first sketch of July…traveling again, this time to Jordan. This started off as a hurried sketch as we were due to board in a matter of minutes. Then as the flight was delayed I found I had much more time. In the end I almost missed my connecting flight in Bahrain. By some miracle that was delayed too, so I made it and my luggage even arrived with me.
