Sketchbook: some more 10 minute sketches

Updated on 3 March 2017 (Harvard referencing).

10 June 2016. Time to make an update on my while-I-wait 10 minute sketches (Fig. 1-8):

Lehen_skyline_10062016
Figure 1. The “skyline” of Lehen, ink pen and watercolour (30 mins)
Elder_playground_10062016
Figure 2. Old elder bush at the playground (20 mins)

Sketching makes me quietly happy, it has become rare now for drawings to go completely wrong and I think that I am finally making some progress regarding my choice of subject and rudimentary composition. It has also increasingly turned into a precious refuge, where time stands still and there is no room for worries.

    These are great. I particularly like your buildings.

    Hi Andrea, I like your 10 mins drawings. I’m just wondering if you are doing painting 1 or drawing 1? Also I like your advice on prospective and am going to take it – had already decided I was going to ignore all that putting in lines to a point stuff. Just too mechanical for me. best wishes, Sue

      Thank you, hopefully it works for you! I did Drawing 1 last year and am less than halfway through Painting 1 now.
      I am following your blog and really like your handling of colour – which is something I am struggling with a lot at the moment. Acrylics and me don’t go well together, yet.
      All the best,
      Andrea
