Husb and I spent a few days in the Lake District this week. It was freezing cold! Temperature dropped to about -4° Celsius at night. We went walking on Birkrigg Common and I did a quick sketch. Very quick as my hands rapidly became too cold to draw. It forces you to focus on the bare essentials of what is before you, there’s no time for detail. I used white, sanguine and black conté crayon into my A4 spiral bound brown paper sketchbook from Seawhites of Brighton.


I am putting my series of drawings of ancient Welsh monuments on Artfinder.  If you want to buy one, you can see them by clicking on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page.
