See inside my USA Sketchbook

I went to the USA for the last couple of weeks in September. I call it a holiday you may call it a vacation. We went to New York for a few days then to a wedding outside Boston – then we had a few days on Cape Cod with wind and rain, thanks to Hurricane Jose!

I had done so much drawing for books I was working on before I left, I didn’t do a lot of drawing while I was away – It was, after all, a holiday!

Have a look at what I did and see a few of the many sights I saw while I was away.

Live Sketching Waterlilies in watercolour

https://youtu.be/VCsT0cT2YtI

Join me as I do a quick sketch of waterlilies on, what I call, the lost pond. We’ve found it now so it isn’t lost anymore! Water lily leaves are basically circular so, to draw them from a side view, they need to be ellipses but all set on the same plane.

I didn’t have very long to do this, about half an hour with set up time. The video has only about 30 seconds edited from it. I drivel on a bit, but I hope some of my chat is useful. Otherwise it’s a nice, peaceful, sunny afternoon by the pond
