Hi - Ann Hyde here. I set this blog up as a relaxed opportunity to stop by as and when you like, plus draw in whatever medium you prefer.
Choose a current photo, or hop back to a previous one. You are welcome to add as many drawings as you want, provided they are from the reference images. I took the photos, hence they are Copyright free.
It's about time I updated the Reference Photos and have decided to add some more buildings. They are a broad selection from photos I have taken over recent months and that you will feel you can interpret them in all sorts of ways...looking forward to seeing what you do.....Ann.
A rather wobbly version of the lighthouse, but fun to do. I didn't out line with pencil first, just went straight on with my Elegant Writer pen. Adding water to the ink, it then spreads out and also changes colour slightly, when you dab with tissue on the wet ink, it goes a pink tone, which is fun to watch happen. This worked well for the red portion of the lighthouse.
I submitted this to a Craftsy course I'm currently doing. It's good to try different ways of going about drawing and I love watching other artists paint, so following along with Marc T. Holmes Travel Sketching in Mixed Media has been really good.
