Tree sketches

Yesterday evening a friend and I hooked up with a fantastic group of local artists for a sketching session in the park. It's the truth, officer. They were most welcoming and it was inspiring to be drawing in their company. Hopefully it'll become a regular thing.
These were drawn with two Pentel pocket pens - one for the black and an empty one for the wash.

Bath sketches

I got into a bit of a pickle with the second one (hence the strange placement of the text!) but I think drawing directly in ink - rather than mapping out the view in pencil first - gives the buildings a bit more character and also forces me to look harder and hopefully generalise less.

From the windy garret

Hi friends. Here are a couple of details of a painting I've been working on. As with the previous one it's acrylics & household paint mixed with plaster and is 24x36".
Also, check out Absinthe Frappé by Jonathan Edwards!
