A Walk In The Woods

4 Feb


I went for a walk in the beautiful Penllegare Woods this morning. I was brilliant sunshine but also only just above freezing point, the low Winter sun threw deep shadows across the leaf-strewn paths. The sketch was quick, just a couple of minutes with conté crayons in black, sanguine and white. The speediness forced me to focus on the essence of the subject, no time for detail. I think it’s a good exercise to do rapid drawings, it hones my observational skills.



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.

    Love this. You caught today’s light perfectly. I went out cycling itching to draw but too little time to do so.

      Thanks Neil, the brown paper makes it much easier to draw tonal values quickly 🙂

    Nothing better than a crisp winter’s day.
