|When I went to Cornwall this time I had just read a snippet about |
deciding what you want to draw before you start.
It sounds so obvious, but deciding that the seam in the rock leading to this little 'cave'
was what I wanted to focus on let me concentrate on the key forms without adding too
much unnecessary detail and shading.
|All these sketches were made on Kennack Sands, where the dog was allowed...|
|Sometimes its easier to settle to a drawing if you're comfortable, |
a chair does mean you can get your angle right,
and there is somewhere to hang your coat in the changeable August weather!
I wonder if makers of this chair realise that their drink holder
on the arm makes a perfect artists pencil holder...
