Drawing Instead of Bad Photos

Recently, my photographs have not done my imagination any justice. What I see fleetingly in the world is not what my smart phone camera records. With the hot weather of the past week being outside and comfortable has been a novelty and I wanted to take epic photos to reflect that. It seemed making drawings that only slightly exaggerate the scene was the way to go.

Thornes Park Aviary Sketching



Ventured out to Thornes Park Aviary this morning for a spot of drawing. It's still too wintry for me to draw outside properly so didn't hang around that long. Sleet, snow and hail. Finished off the gnarly old tree stump back at home using a photo for reference.

Sketchbook Diary (Wheat Free)


Writing and doodling about everything and nothing in particular. The weather and life has been a bit chaotic in Wakefield this week. All at once, spring weather thunder and hail showers powerful enough to cause flooding in the house and cellar. Gutters backing up with ice, forcing water where water shouldn't be forced under the eaves. Combined with discovering last week that I am now wheat intolerant giving me migraines and stomach upsets for the past six weeks.

Watching Line of Duty


Sketching while watching Series 3 of Line of Duty. Drawn and coloured direct, character names researched afterwards.
