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!
I drew this last night while watching a TV programme called fake or fortune. The art on the TV didn’t help me get the perspective right though!
Here is my 500th drawing on this blog – in this one I enjoyed splashing the colours around in my parents sunny kitchen. Their house is scattered with thousands of china cats…these three are just a small sample.
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.
Today my daughter and I spent a while in Lavenham square sketching – amazingly it hasn’t rained yet today and was quite sunny. Here is the drawing that I did – starting off using indelible ink and then watercolour and watercolour pencils.
Here is my sketch from this morning in Lavenham. Lots of wonky houses on a fairly cold and cloudy morning. I added some pastel to this one for a change…the watercolour doesn’t take so well to my new sketchbook and I felt like it needed something bolder.
A colourful doodle while watching TV at my parents house. There are 4 china cats in this picture if you can spot them. Still getting used to my new sketchbook.
