Sketching at Morden Hall Park

One sunny morning I took myself off to Morden Hall Park, a local favourite park, and did the following two sketches. I later added the watercolour.

Sketching in the local area

When I attended the Annual Inspection of the Gibson Memorial Tomb I decided to sketch the tomb and surrounding graves and this is the result. 

Collage face

After our watercolour course we did a short course collage course.  This was the first attempt where I was copying another collage, but not a bad effort. 

Second watercolour picture

I actually finished a second watercolour and this one is going to my friend in Devon as she wants to buy it!

Sketching at the V&A

Yesterday was my first outing of 2016 to do some sketching, so I took a course with Sketchout to the Victoria & Albert Museum.  These are the two pictures I produced.
