I have found a new love for September, the transition from summer to autumn, the colours and the coolness of the air whilst the sun still streams, it really is nature at it's best. With sketching, it's not about the end result but the process of just putting pen to paper and being in the... Continue Reading →

Summer Sketching

June has been a month of glorious sunshine in London and I've enjoyed using my blackwing pencil and watercolours. My sketching this month has been inspired by Paul Wang, his use of continuous line and loose watercolours are a dance on paper.

Sketching Small

February has been pretty cold here in London and so I've not really ventured out to sketch. Instead, I have embraced sketching small and the everyday items around me.

Quick Sketching 

It's been a busy few weeks. I've been trying to sketch daily, learning at Sketchbook Skool on their Exploring course and reading all about Urban Sketching - and breathe! I came across a habit app which tracks anything you like and for me it was sketching daily.  I managed to sketch for 13 days in... Continue Reading →

London Urban Sketchers @Alexandra Palace 

It was brilliant to meet at Alexandra Palace with the London Urban Sketchers today. The Ice Rink was a great place to practice gesture sketching with my new dip pen. It was a challenging sketch with all the skaters moving around so fast, it felt like you had 0.00000001 of second to capture them whilst... Continue Reading →
