    Each time you surprise me!
    There is real artistry in these sketches.

    How have you done these?

    • I don’t know. These happened. Started off with ink then carried on with crayons, acrylic and pencils. It’s done on mount board. Somewhat annoyingly, because of my tightness, I did these on either side of the same piece of board. I’ve seen 2 pictures by Arnesby Brown today where he’s done the same thing.

    • Actually, I hope/think they’ve come out of a more draw-ly(?) approach since going to Oliver Lovley’s workshops and increased sketching following your example. Also a friend highlighting my previous use of a bright background colour. Nothing just happens, but I don’t reflect as often as I should.

  3. Love the stormy feeling~

  4. Oh oh oh, such beautiful colours!

    • A return to colour for me! Doesn’t always work, but I think it has here. The line of the trees was so strong in the middle one they demanded to be drawn. I took a photo of them going past in the car. The first photo was mostly of a road sign!

    • Thank you David. I like them both and regret doing them back to back on a piece of board! It will either take a large perspex stand to display them together or I’ll have to cut a whole in the wall like they do for fish tanks. Actually, they are in the pile under the table where everything goes.

  5. I like the colours for these too. Like the middle one.

  6. Like the colours too. Especially the middle one. Great balance.
