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

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

  2. 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

    1. 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) :)

  3. 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!
