Library Sketching…

I draw. ALL THE TIME. It’s the only way to become any good at anything, to do it. And to keep on doing it…

Sketching and drawing and painting all help each other, idle sketches like this (from good reference books) help the hand-eye relationship and steady the lines, I made these sketches directly in sepia pen on crappy notepad paper and would recommend this no-pressure doodling to anyone who wants to better their craft.

A Small Dead Bird…

My son found this little beauty in the garden yesterday morning, thought I’d pay tribute to it’s short little life.

Watercolour on Arches 300gsm hot press paper.
