Artful Apple

5 minute sketch in charcoal on scrap paper

Even a few minutes is time enough for a quick sketch.

The contrast of light and shadow always emphasises how even the darkness is needed in order to fully appreciate the light.

20 min watercolour pencil sketch

You'll look at least on love's remains,
A grave's one violet:
Your look?--that pays a thousand pains.

Time Out

15 min sketch with wc pencil

Everyone needs to take time out each day just to gather themselves together, take a break and get ready for the next challenge. Even 15 minutes can be enough to make a huge difference.

Street scene

20 min street scene

This was 7 am before work, which explains the deserted street, but Costa Coffee was open for business. After the sketch I went in for a fabulous hot chocolate.... Mmmmm, great way to start the day!
