October Sketches

30 October 2014
Watercolour on Paper
12cm x 18cm (5" x 7")

These are my favourite sketches from October.

The sketch at the top of the page was inspired by a post called Poor Man's Impressionism by Nathan Fowkes.

Watercolour on Paper
18cm x 12cm (7" x 5")

I foraged the rosehip on a Sunday morning walk with Elaine. The beginning of October seems a long time ago - the weather is much damper now and there are lots of wet leaves on the ground.

Graphite Pencil
Winsor & Newton A4 Heavy Weight Sketch Book
29.7cm x 21.0cm (11.75" x 8.25")

This last sketch is of one of Elaine’s favourite poses for me to draw. It is one of the few poses that is comfortable for 30 minutes and she can watch TV while I am scribbling. We used a similar pose for some of the exercises in Keys to Drawing - Chapter 3.
