Sketches and ideas


Sketches help me decide how to set out a painting and also the doodling part gives me ideas too.  That's how some of my recent paintings have began....a piece of paper, pencil and watercolour.   Not all my sketches and ideas end up as completed works, but a lot do...




















Here's where you may recognise some of the above, 
now on my Etsy shop

I love seeing the process, Ann!

They look great, Ann! I love the bird! And of course, the 'minimalist' sketch of William!

Fascinating to see the process. The robin is a fine, cheeky looking fellow

Thanks Marie, I thought it would be a bit different adding the 'rough drawings' for a change.
