It was Shakespeares 400th anniversary of his birth the other day , and i was watching the RSC programme on the bbc , they had extracts from shakespear , opera and dance which these very loose sketches was my attempt to capture  a dance between othello and desdemona, big heavy marks for othello and more fluid delicate marks for desdemona.

Novembers Best bits of Sketch a day

novsketchaday

It has been a busy and emotional kind of month. and I will admit that i have missed a few days (9 to be precise!) sketching  this month, and sometimes it has felt like a chore. (which is worrying as i have only been doing it 3 months and have another 9 month ahead of me!)

BUT , this month (December) it is my aim to be consistent and put more effort into my sketches, to get myself back on track .

I am going to try to gather some different materials to try drawing with , and maybe think about choosing a theme for this month, like just focus on people and portraits, as it is a family time of year for me.

As always thanks for looking and reading , and good luck in any projects you have going on!

Three images of details of the large drawings I did at Westonbirt,

If you look closely you can see small pieces of text amongst the drawing, these were overheard snippets of conversation from the people passing by.

A1 Drawing the Second

This was the second Plane tree that I  drew while I was there  that week ( for more info please visit my westonbirt arboretum page) This one was in the snow, and awfully cold, made me work fast, which I think helped this drawing, the other two , which were done in more friendly weather conditions I spent a bit more time over, theres more detail to them, but I like the fact that this one is not too detailed or overworked.
