A beautiful day

Hello! Saturday was a lovely day in my part of Leicestershire. I was on my way to meet up with friends, but had to pull over as I passed this field for a quick sketch – just a peaceful sight – a field recently harvested with a distant red kite calling in the distance and a mysterious creaking sound coming from the trees – I never discovered what made the sound but it was great to listen as I drew. Here is the drawing which I included for yesterday’s #DrawingAugust project:

Still life

Hello! Still working through the daily drawing challenge, #DrawingAugust, I’m finding that I’m drawing all sorts of things! Today, I made a little still life, something I’ve not done for a long time – Happy drawing!  

A bit of a challenge…

For a bit of fun, have a go at the challenge to do a drawing every day through August. You make a drawing, scan or photograph it and send it via Twitter to #DrawingAugust.  Here is the one I made earlier today – a preparatory study of cyclists for a new oil painting inspired by the Tour de France. Happy drawing!
