Some colour.. well just a bit…I thought I would try to make a quick gouache colour note every day, based on the B/W sketches and my notes.
MONDAY: the morning drizzle turned into heavy rain
My early washed out sketch, it says “4 cormorants take off in this grey scene, it’s raining harder. 7.50 am”
Later the gouache sketch from notes.. black ducks and white seagulls, the horizon lost in mist. Looking west.
I sketched a big anvil shaped cloud on the horizon over Perry. Two whiter than white swans flew across the lake surface.
The gouache sketch later from my notes. I forgot the swans!
WED: Nice early but the rain started soon after I left the house. No early morning sketch but later it cleared and I walked up past the water tower
Looking east from the road. Some rooks on the stubble.
Light in the wood
The gouache colour note. I have been thinking about printing today so the colours are a bit blocky.
FRI: A slightly longer walk.
Gouache colour note, silvery green grey willows are so beautiful in the wind.
SUND: A cold breezy morning. Our small inland sea has waves today.
and another small oil sketch based on Friday’s sketch…just to keep practising.
Tomorrow I am hoping to do another Sketchbook in a Day…:)
