Drawings from the sketchbook -London and Valparaiso

Across to Mojacar Pueblo, from behind My studio (named "Picasso"!)

The Garden at Valparaiso - near "Pieter's Place"

I draw as a means of calming my self for later work in the studio; to remove myself from the world; to start the "seeing" process; to slow down my observation; and to train the hand to follow the eye. Here are the results of some of the more successful sketches from the residency in Spain (and one from London - it was whirlwind!)
Hope you like them!

  1. Nice drawings of Mojácar! I have been there last spring, and i definitely recognize the landscape. I also was sketching a lot there and enjoyed the stay.
    All the best
