It’s been a while since I shared some outdoors drawings. These are the most recent ones, in no particular order.
For the drawing above I was standing in the open whilst it was snowing/drizzling. I realised quite soon that drawing on damp paper wasn’t going to work. I left it unfinished. For now. Until a sunny day calls in the near future.
For this drawing of Whitechapel Gallery I stood in the cold after watching a couple of exhibitions (William Kentridge and Guerrilla Girls). It was done quickly and with very cold fingers. I am pleased I did it, despite the wonky buildings and awkward proportions.
I drew these two churches after work. I learned not to draw when I’m too tired to think clearly. As in previous cases, there may be a next time. Hopefully well rested and with a clear mind -so as not to cut the bottom of a building off-
I was doing some errands in London and I noticed it was getting dark. Before getting on the tube I checked the view from the bridge. The sky was still pink, I quickly grabbed my pad and pens. I happened to carry a red watercolour pencil that day.
I had some time before the arrival of my bus, so I took longer with this drawing of Croydon Town Hall.
On the last drawing my pen ran out of ink. Luckily I had a spare pen with diluted ink (one of my experiments) and was able to finish the image.
Thanks for reading this and checking my drawings.
