Spent a couple of hours at life drawing last night, I always start with good intentions to go every week and I never do. Looking back through my sketchbook realised it’s almost a year since I last went, I think life drawing must be my version of not going to the gym.
Been away from the urban grind for a while, swapped the congestion and pollution of London for the open expanses and peace of North Wales. I don’t often draw landscapes, but here’s two sketches I did halfway up Snowdon. The two lakes are Llyn Idwal and Llyn Llydaw. Went up the easyish route, which was still hard going, took around 8 hours, some very sore feet by the time we got back down.
Summer’s here but I seem to have reverted to working on black and white. Bought a brush pen a while back and not really used one much before, really like the way pressure completely changes the line, just like a brush, who’d have thought! Time to visit an art shop and see what other colours they do.
