Sketchy on the Detail

Draw a little every day

Y2D293 and settling in

There is still so much to get for my new place, one of the problems of moving back with half a house, but at least my bedroom is starting to take shape with its two new bookcases.


Y2D273 and check lists

So I achieved a couple of things off the “move to Adelaide” list, though I still haven’t sorted the accommodation. I have about five properties to see, so hopefully one will be suitable and I get it.


This line drawing means absolutely nothing other than I haven’t done one for a while and I felt like a change. In case you were wondering.

Y2D231 and still behind

Yes, still a day behind in the posting and leaving my drawing to the last minute. This is a continuously line drawing of Peppi snoozing (again, but it was late at night). He’s really shaggy but in there somewhere.


Y2D159 and model

I haven’t been to a life drawing class in ages so I have to grab a model when I find one. By this I naturally mean Pinterest….


Y2D142 and modernist

I say modernist, but what I really mean is laziness+inky pen brushes.


Y2D132 and newbie

The joys of a new sketchbook, nothing like breaking the ice with some still life. Pity I couldn’t find the energy to scan it in properly though, you’ll just have to image the full 3B line drawing glory.


Y2D129 and seriously

I thought about going to the NPG to sketch after work but this persistent dog bark and the lousy weather put me off, so it’s  serious line drawings whilst watching rather serious movies on my not so serious laptop.


Y2D110 and glassware

Just a few objects from around the house, and from this morning’s kitchen clear out.


I like line drawings, but I haven’t done a proper one for a while. This I first did in graphite and then went over in a scratchy pen.

Y2D46 and mad rush

A series of very quick line drawings from the daily commute


Y2D15 and dramatic profiles

Fooled you! It’s really just a bit of tv sketching. But it is a drama series, and it was a profile, so not entirely a fabrication. I do like continuous line drawing for quick “poses”, much easier to capture the essence.
