I've been busy and working on a 40 inch canvas so not sketching - this is a very quick scruffy one of the blackbirds in my crab apple tree on a COLD day. I love the pattern they make with the glowing orange apples.

pencil and a touch of watercolour, really fast

Thanks Joan :)

and playing with an idea. I'm taking part in an exhibtion Little Selves - small images that the gallery will frame in a standard size. It's only 6 inches.

thank you :)


and done on a sketch day at the museum - we were running it so sketches were done quickly in between talking to the 300 plus visitors who joined our group to chat and sketch, not all at once! but 50+ at a time. Luckily there were a few of us running it but it was still full on hectic. The museum put objects out and provided paper and drawing materials for visitors of all ages - but I opted to sketch the sketchers.
