Smudge relaxing!

Smudge had rearranged himself again - tried to quickly capture his complete relaxation. I'm not happy with the chair - I think I should have shown more of its form.

Who can resist the curled up shape of a cat asleep in a comfy chair!

October Sun and Shade

2b pencil

It was one of those sunny October days today - jackets on but bright skies. Took a grandchild to Culzean Park and when she fell asleep in her carseat I took the chance to stop and sketch a lane with deep evergreen hedges. The shadows crossing the road were intriguing as was the bright field in the distance. I'm thinking of using this for a painting but making the darks darker and bending the lane more.

Child's Chair - my chair!

Pencil and Drawing Pen

I used to sit in this chair when very small. I want to include it in a painting and felt I needed to get to know the shape. It wasn't easy, took a lot of looking and redrawing.

Pepper Pages

Colour Pencil and Watercolour

Making soup and was fascinated by the view of a cut pepper. Tried to capture the image using colour pencil then pencil and watercolour. I think I prefer the first image.
