I moved to London at the beginning of the year and I’m still very much adjusting to this busy city. Haven’t doodled as much as I’d like to but here are a few I managed to squeeze in. I’m hoping to find some interesting drawing classes, really want to draw dancers and costumed performers, figured London is bound to have something like that!
A2, gouache and ink, 1 1/2 hrs
This weeks colour piece was not as disastrous as last weeks but I still felt incredibly out of my comfort zone. It took a while to build up all the colours on this piece because I didn't have the courage to paint opaquely like you can with gouache, instead I built up layers of washed out colour.
Warm up sketches, 2-3 mins, Charcoal
Quick sketch at Summerlee Industrial museum. That's me getting back into more location drawing again, I can't quite brave the cold yet but Summerlee was a place that I hadn't been to since I was really wee. Once it warms back up again or atleast not freezing cold then I'll go back to draw around the builing, it's a great building.
