Sunday Doodles

Cooking a traditional roast, the laundry and family time makes Sunday quite a busy day for me. Determined to make the most of the gaps in between I grabbed a couple of sketchbooks and pens and left them in different rooms of my home.

After loading the machine I took a few moments on my sun lounger outside this morning and made a few sketches from imagination to 'break the ice'. I later added a little shading using a water-brush that I have added a few drops of black ink into. I purchased the ink yesterday with this intention and I'm pleased with how it works, I shall be adding it to my location sketch kit.

Later in the afternoon, after checking on the beef joint, I took a well earned coffee into the lounge and sketched my fireplace in my A6 W&N sketchbook.

Finally, time with my eldest watching a comedy show on TV, produced the quick, final sketch of the day in my slightly larger, A5 W&N .

Proof and a great reminder, that there is ALWAYS time for a quick sketch.

...The beef was delicious by the way!
