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.
Really nice out there today, so managed to get out, wandered up to Trafalgar Square and sat in the sun for half hour for a bit of lunchtime sketching.
Wimbledon has just started so that probably means it’s going to start raining again soon
Taking a break from trying to figure out how to use watercolours. I haven’t done an ink drawing for a while, so time to get the pens out again.
Quick sketch while waiting for the train at Highbury, unfortunately the train on the other platform arrived first
I find it impossible to walk past an art shop without going in and it’s almost impossible to leave without buying something. Today’s purchase was an A4 hardback sketchbook. I always promise to fill a new sketch book but I never do, I walk past too many artshops and keep buying new ones,I have a lot of half filled sketchbooks, my last one was 3/4 so that’s not too bad. Here’s the first in the new one.
Managed to get quite a bit of painting done in May. June has been the total opposite so far, busy but not getting anything onto paper. Looking back through a sketchbook I found this half finished from when it was a bit colder.
