Days Out Drawing

Been a while since I have put anything up. However does not mean I have been idle. Had a few days out drawing with partner in crime and photography friend and am quite pleased with some of the results.

We had a couple of hours in Biddulph Grange Gardens and that is the featured image. It was lovely and warm and we sat in the shade, although I did finish this at home I had about 50% completed at the time.

Spent an afternoon at Teggs Nose and have two images. A little landscape and then I was messing around with a leaf on one of my coloured backgrounds. I really like how starting to block in the background gave a really interesting result.

Then with photography friend a few hours at La Quinta Arboretum. I did a couple of drawings between being posed in an avenue of trees! The tree stumps were done on a textured background, already in my book. It lent texture to the image and helps give a feeling of the plants standing in the background.

All in all feel I have done some fun things in my going out sketch books.
