Sketching outside

Sketching outside is challenging. Everything moves, the leaves, the ears, the sun… adding the colour after a few weeks brings back these memories.

Dessiner d’après nature c’est stimulant car tout bouge, les feuilles, les oreilles, le soleil… ajouter la couleur plus tard fait resurgir ces souvenirs.

  1. aloha Benedicte. yeah, sketching outside… I agree. of course, all that movement, and weather, and light shifting and the bugs and birds and sounds and scents… aaaahhh… all that stuff, gets into the sketch/work – the way I see it. And that is how so much life gets into a live outdoor sketch – imo. like these. aaahhh life. in these. beautiful. rich. delicious. and way fun too.

    I particularly like the hill ridge landscape. a great sense of atmospheric perspective and distance.

    the lower one makes me think of Judi Bett’s and her goats in the book Watercolor – Let’s Think About It… cool on that.
