Landscape from Dordogne...



A land and sky study of a view in Dordogne (France).

Mauritian skyscape...



I'm not at all in Mauritius now, but here above is a preparatory sketch of a view from the island. As I have been there a few times with opportunities to study skies like this one mentally or noted down in my sketchbooks. This helps when I work at home with eventually my pictures. It's preferable to use your own photographs, rather than someone else's from a place you might not even been to. 
The preparatory sketches tend to be more spontaneous than bigger works.

Drawing marathon...





Drawings from the other day when I was invited to participate in a "drawing marathon"; from 10 am to 10 pm! Mostly long poses which explains this, for me, unusual result. I did "cheat" as I had other obligations in the middle of the day, which gave me break of two or three hours. Nevertheless it was great fun in good company. It also did me good as I hadn't drawn figures much this year. I felt a bit rusty. I hope this will change the coming year and that I will be able to explore drawing more.
