Bloggers’ Day Out: The trees

January 4, 2017

I began to warm up after sketching the buildings – not literally – it was bloody freezing! Kestrelart has some more from the day here

  1. Winter trees: somehow so rewarding to draw.

  2. I see you might have a slight love for trees.

    I love the way trees reveal their hidden personalities in the nakedness of winter. (K)

  4. Boy do I wish I had that pen thingy to show you what I can see in your sketches!!! Good on you braving the elements and getting involved in a day out 🙂
    just a little glimpse into what I can see…as well as the trees of course 😉
    Pic 1: male(on the right with large head and sticky out ear to the right also) standing very close to female on left (in centre of trees-maybe about to have their first kiss!!)
    pic 2: a colony of nomadic rabbits on the move 🙂
    pic 3: OMGoodness the amount of little faces within!!…not to mention the happy piranha sticking out far left just above half way 🙂
    Next to bottom pic: I get this lovely scene of ‘spirit bodies’ leaving the tree and getting ready to soar-probably because of the round ‘head shapes’ incorporated in your sketch
    So enjoyable and great work…hope you’ve warmed up by now 😉

  5. The onevthing about cold weather is you don’t have the time or inclination for overly detailed work. I love the looseness of these sketches. We are about to face the opposite with our next USk meeting this Sunday at 34 °C and at an open site with not a lot of shade. I expect many won’t make it out of the cafe!

    • Have you seen Kestrelart’s blog? He bravely managed to keep his deatial. But i do think he ended up colder than me! I think I may suffer with that amount of heat more. Enjoy the day

      • Yes I have. Don’t know how you do it, but having a sketching friend along must help egg you on.

        • That’s definately the longest time I’ve spent sketching outside ever. I meant to ask, are you in Australia? If so whereabouts? We’re going to make a visit so I’ve become very interested in Dec/Jan temperatures!

          • Hi, yes I am in Australia. Temperatures are hot in December and January. I live in Canberra which is inland so we are looking at temps of 30 to 36° C, particularly in January. December is cooler, high 20’s, but can vary widely. It also depends where you go. Hotter parts of the country eg central Australia can get up around the 40’s so for example, Uluru I probably wouldn’t recommend unless you stay in the resorts. The coasts cities such as Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne will be around the same 30 ° temps, but are more humid than inland. Perth and Adelaide are often high 30 ‘s. When your planning gets more advanced happy to discuss details my contact page. 🌞

    Sooo many sketches.
    In the time you drew these plus those of buildings, I did five!
    Great drawings too. But I like your comment above why you like drawing winter trees.

    • I know, but mine are of rather varying quality. It is interesting to compare our output, detail level, choice of material, view and composition. Winter trees are more approachable I think, less aloof!

  7. I’m from California trying to draw trees outside of London and it’s cold!
