Pub sketches

Some sketches from the pub, at a meetup group where you draw each other (handily).  I have this really cool new Moleskine with a concertina structure, hence the lack of break between pages.

The Fens

Posted by – 2 August, 2016

I’ve been doing some landscape painting recently.  I live on the Fens and for some reason I am compelled to paint the landscape, even though there basically isn’t any (it’s almost completely flat).  The skies are where the landscape’s at but they’re very challenging; solution: scribble with paint brush in irritation.

2nd go.


Urban sketching

A sketch of William Pitt, in Pembroke College, Cambridge.


It was way too cold for the allotted 2hrs of drawing; after managing that one I produced worse and worse work until I gave up and went off for hot chocolate.  I am clearly a fair weather sketcher.  Also I do get a bit bored drawing buildings, even though I love looking at them when someone else does them.
