  1. Lovely sketches. Great expressions from so few strokes on the people too 🙂

    • Thanks Caren. This was a workshop and although I wasn’t blown away with what i produced, it made me try some new things and got me thinking in a different way. Nice to find I’m still open to new ideas! Practise of drawing in public too, i lasted quite a while!

      • I think it’s always exciting to get ‘stretched’ in a new direction, you never know what the outcome will be?! And lovely results especially with the added pressure of drawing in public 🙂

  2. Love the hole in the glass and the person sketches. Well done.

    I was struck first by the title … Where did that come from, OA? I think these sketches are great. I’m going back for a second look.

    So now looked again. The first sketch really has a sense of framing the external scene in the splaying window frames, contrasting the curved lines with the straight ones behind. But really struck by the next two interiors, in which the fine and heavy lines are juxtaposed and the plant looks almost sinister in its leopard spots. The eternal lines spiralling to build the cave walls are very evocative. This is a great set of sketches from this workshop.

    • It’s a Pogues song, several of my titles are lyrics – i’ve usually got music on in the background. I think the window frame sketch was a good warm up and liked practising ėdifferent marks on the crushed leather and spotty plant. I think i should have stopped sooner with the tunnel, then ran out of steam – the bar was calling! I’ve been trying to get texture into painted trees tonight with not much success. Think will try and do something with the interior sketches instead. Lovley mentioned Egon Schiele, perhaps i should look at him before i have another go tomorrow. Must actually make the most of the weather too and poke my head out the back door. Have a good weekend.

  6. I really like the first sketch from the caves. Somehow there’s a sense of movement there — like the lines crawled their way to their position in your sketch. Very interesting!
