A quick sketch


FRIDAY - Painting en plein air at Arlington Court - 

Weather - Very Windy - Lost my hat 4 times.  Thank goodness I didn't opt to use my easel, it surely would have fallen over.  Needless to say, I got some painting done and started a 12" x 9" watercolour (which I can't show yet as I still need to finish it in my home studio).

There's a lot of note taking during my sessions, regardless of the weather - sketches, doodles etc for my artwork at Arlington Court.  I am gathering quite a collection and yesterday I added some quick sketches to my stock....

I look upon them as 'Prompts'  and  'Reminders for paintings yet to do'








It's really helpful to do these sketches as from them, I get more ideas.

vignette's

have sprung to mind.


- Have a great weekend -

It looks like you paid attention to the details of the scene. I find it helps to do the same taking photographs too, Ann.

Yes, I find it makes a massive difference, especially after a gap, when you can go back and refresh your memory of the scene :)

If your hat blew off 4 times, it is a very good thing you weren't using your easel. lol Nice sketches, Ann!
