Part 2 doesn’t include landscape but my sketchbook does as I’ve kept up the impetus, and one sketch drew comment for its looseness of mark. Could I maybe try that on a larger scale and still keep the informality?
This is the sketch. It’s from a photo I took a little while ago of a round hill called Tin Pots for reasons people locally couldn’t quite pin down for me. It’s on my jogging/walking/nattering route so I see it nearly every day. In the summer, it’s quite bright and yellow, this time of year the colours are brownish and the shrubs spikey although in full sunlight it still has an almost artificial look about it.
It’s not the first time I’ve drawn it so this sketch has benefited from a bit of practice. In fact I’ve gone further and actually painted it on 16×12 canvas. Here it is, made with acrylics and, if I remember rightly, a little ink:
I was very pleased with the result and I still am, but everything benefits from a bit more building and I have new techniques I can bring to bear so I’ll see what I can do about enlarging this even further.
