Part of My Creative Practise

I am a great believer in the use of a sketchbook as it is a direct connection with the place you have been to and the squiggles and notes you make are important to  you at the time, so here are a couple examples of  quick note sketches I did when I was down at Southsea this week link is here if you want see photos

Then i go away and it becomes a stored memory, a image to be born into a painting at a later date perhaps

Pleasant walk at East Meon

A pleasant walk yesterday at East Meon

I love this view of the steeple of church…

A herd of cows under the trees…apparently there was a bull the other side………!

No cows here but harvest tine is nearer…..

Shape formation on Landscape this is chalk….

The bails of hay laid out….

Time for a quick sketch…Yes a pleasant walk indeed

The Room with a View

img441This is from a sketch book of mine showing  the view from the bedroom of where I was staying in a small village  north of Pisa.

The pink of a early morning cloud and the way the road winds down the mountainside, you always knew when a car was  being driven down the mountain side as its owner hit the horn to warn other drivers. also the colour of rooftops. I hink it was the first morning as well so there is the excitment and freshness of a brand new day

a sketch book evoks memory and is more intimet than photos. You can also write notes in a sketchbook.
