Sunny Sunday

19 Oct

It’s been a difficult few months, with the worst summer in living memory and serious illness and deaths of people dear to us but ….. fingers crossed…… things seem to have calmed down a bit and last Sunday we spend a delightful afternoon in the unexpectedly warm weather, visiting Limeslade with an elderly relative. We had ice cream in the lovely old Fortes cafe and sat and watched the sea crashing over the rocks in the sunshine. Gorgeous. I scribbled this couple across the road from us, engrossed in looking at the view.

I don’t find it easy to draw landscape; I concentrate on making marks and hope for the best. I used my favourite Pilot Hi-Techpoint V5 pen into my A5 recycled sari sketchbook, used across the two pages.

    Love how you captured the posture of the two people. Ahhhh the old Pilot V5. Still my all time favourite. I bought some value box some time ago but I’ve run out of all the blacks. Looked for them in the supermarket but there’s all this fancy rubbish on the shelf and nothing good. Haha serves me right for being so lazy!
    I hope things get better for you and those dear to you now too. Take care and keep those lovely scribbles coming!

    The great thing about landscapes is that they don’t have to be exact copies of what Mother Nature created. Nobody will notice if a hill is bumpy in the wrong place or there are too many clumps of leaves on a tree!
