Cornwall Beach sketch


I like jotting and doodling in my sketchbook  (although I do large paintings in mediums Oil, Acyrlics and Watercolours), there is something very enjoyable about having a sketchbook....

so here's my version of the reference photo Cornwall Beach scene...

A new photograph today


Another beach - this time in Cornwall.  There could be options here for making this quite dramatic (the sky was brewing up a storm at the time).  Or this could lend itself to being quite a calm peaceful beach scene.  Whatever you choose it has to be fun.  Enjoy.

Owl, Ann Hyde


The new reference photo today has inspired me to do a quick sketch...

I was lucky enough to have actually seen this owl in real life.
It was so quiet sitting there in the tree, 
not taking any notice of activity around it.


A new reference photo today...


Something different.  An Owl.  This photograph was taken by my husband at the National Trust property, Arlington Court, where we volunteer.  This owl was sitting in one of the trees near the office.
