It’s been nearly 2 months since I last posted some of my sketches. Wow, where has the time gone. We are half way through the year. Can you believe it? It’s summer, that means it’s lighter for longer. I’m still trying to do some sketching every day but sometimes I default and then do more the next day. I figure that I can let myself odd the hook. It’s been 6 months since I started this journey and I’ve got quite a bit to show for it, wouldn’t you agree?
For new readers, here are some more of my older sketches.
My fascination with dense housing and cityscapes continues and I’m forever looking to improve.
I spent a day at a hospital with a dear friend who had keyhole surgery on his knee. What else to do but take my sketchbook and sketching utensils. This was more of a doodle. I really was there to take care of my friend and not obsess about some complex and intricate design. The nurses were most fascinated….
At the hospital I saw something about glass eyes that inspired this following sketch. A bit eerie now I’ve told you?
Back to some flowers. They always pop up somewhere and I so enjoy sketching them.
A cityscape in some more muted tones.
An imaginary forest. I did an embroidery of this many years ago so fancied having a go with markers instead of stitching.
There seems to be rainbows EVERYWHERE on social media. I somehow wanted to join in…
My imaginary gallery. I’m not good at figure drawing, but fancied a little challenge. Here I went over to the dark side!
And finally, another cityscape. A mad one, a really dense one and most colourful too. I must learn to get more straight lines:-)
That’s it. We’re having a heatwave in London right now. I hope you all stay cool and for those in the southern hemisphere, hope you’re not too cold. See ya x
