Studio Hyde Art welcome to my little corner of the internet

Random sketches from our recent trip...


Quick reminders of the scene -
these could end up as full sized paintings some time





 sketched this last one on Khadi paper -
it absorbs the watercolour like a sponge,
but gives a misty effect

They're lovely Ann. I especially like the one of the boat!

I love the looseness of these.... I tend to try and put a lot of details in where they aren't needed. I really love them. TFS

Thanks Eileen :)

It is always a tricky thing to know what to add and what Not to add. I have a rule of thumb : The FIRST thing you see that interests you in a scene, is the Main Focus for your drawing. Hope that helps. (In fact you have given me my blog post for the Useful Tips blog today, thanks for that Emie) :)

I love these, especially the one with the boat. The colours of the scenery, then the splash of red in the boat are so perfect. You used the perfect red!

ann @ studiohyde said...

Thanks Marie, you can't beat a spot of red in a picture :)

Beautiful, Ann, I love the khadi paper effect!

ann @ studiohyde said...

Thank you Judy, I like khadi paper but it needs A LOT of paint as it absorbs so well...still, that makes it more a challenge, lol :)
