Walking It Off

27 Dec

xmas-mumbles-2016

After 2 days of scoffing and lazing, no work, no art, husb and I shifted our behinds off the comfy settee, dragged ourselves out into the cold and started walking off the sluggishness of the holiday. I took my brown paper sketchbook and some conté crayons and did a quick sketch across Swansea Bay. It’s always a challenge to draw a large expanse, whether nature or a built environment, because there’s so much there but I try and focus on the basic detail, the bare essential of what’s in front of me and also to exploit the medium, trying to get some feeling, expression and interest from the way I use the crayons. I feel a little bit lighter now.

    Love the distant hills and the fluidity of those clouds, good to get outside after Xmas! I need to do the same 😘

      Thanks Phil. It’s nice to get out and blow away the cobwebs 😊
