Fast Sketches

This morning I had the rare opportunity to visit the village shop solo.  It was so tempted to stop and draw everything, but in reality I only had time to do a quick sketch of the hills.


I did a super quick 2 minute sketch of the basic outlines and shadow shapes while I was out.  I tried to give myself enough clues to finish the drawing when I got home and do the hatching.  Landscapes are always such a challenge, I’m trying to practice simplifying the shapes and not worrying as much about the details.


Here’s another example of a super quick sketch.  I had made a fresh batch of scones and was desperate to eat one.  I did a bit more wet and wet than normal, and particularly enjoyed doing the splatter for the texture.
