Blackfriars Bridge in Winter

Blackfriars Bridge in Winter, ink watercolour and gouche, 2.5 x 3.5 inches, ©2016
A warm sunny Sunday, followed up with a cold blustery Monday! I did this little illustration a couple of weeks ago and today felt more like this.

Warm Sunday!

Sketchbook ~ downtown view from west London
Warm and sunny yesterday. Yesterday, Sunday, March 27 felt like spring, this was first time this year to sit outside and sketch, down by the forks of the Thames, where I walk all the time. I recently bought a new sketchbook with tan coloured pages and my plan was to use it as my "urban sketching book" or for people sketching, in an effort to draw more people. So, there are people biking, walking, running on the bike path, along with all the architecture.

Looking out my back door

Sketchbook ~ Looking out my back door
Quick sketch "looking out my back door".
Reminds me of that song by Creedence Clearwater Revival

Just got home from Illinois locked the front door oh boy!
Got to sit down take a rest on the porch
Imagination sets in pretty soon I'm singin'
Doo doo doo lookin' out my back door......

Figure Drawing

Sketchbook ~ Figure Drawing
Tuesday afternoon figure drawing session at the Arts Project, male model. I prefer female, but I think it's good practice to draw males too. The model was great, totally enjoyed the session. Not only did he hold the poses really well, his poses were interesting and challenging. Well defined muscle structure in the form. Faber Castell PITT Pen and 6B pencil.
