Jottings in May II: Cycling and painting

A comment from another artist blogger reminded me to post these sketches made while cycling the canal towpaths a few weeks ago. This first one is in a tiny pocket watercolour book.

Here I followed a heron as it flapped a few hundred metres at a time ahead of me. I stopped far enough away to observe it, tonally blending with the bank but reflected in the water.

This abstraction from the scene was drawn in pen during a meeting some days later.

    • Thanks Sharon – if I can develop some of my sketches to something close to the dynamism and interest evident in your paintings I would count myself happy.
