Lurking in the Undergrowth

Back drawing in the undergrowth at Haw Park Wood. Did about half of the line work outside and finished off the pages back in the warmth at home. Even wrapped up the cold creeps into your bones seizing joints. The cafe at Anglers Counrty Park provided a bowl of tasty vegetable soup which helped in thawing me out.

Christmas Down in the Woods

There are plenty of people about. I get the impression unlike me, they are on their way to somewhere rather than just hanging out in the woods drawing. I feel weird. There are birds twittering but other than that it's all pretty quiet.

Beneath My Feet

A scan of my sketchbook. My weather app said it was 2 ºC feeling more like -2ºC and it certainly did. I'd been exercising around the park beforehand so had a bit of excess body heat but it didn't last long. The fingers were the first to go after about 20minutes.

I drew 70% of the line work in the park finishing off and applying coffee wash and white ink back at home in the warm.

Abandoned Campfire Creeps

Took the long way to the supermarket via Thornes Park. Tried to find the highest point in the park and in doing so came across the smouldering remains of a campfire amongst the gnarly trees. White smoke gently drifting in the midday sun. I did a drawing but was aware of scavenging squirrels and birds scuffling about.

I finished the drawing off at home and added a coffee wash and white out to make the smoke more smoky.
