Out and About






I realised I hadn't scanned my sketchbook for ages, so here are a few sketches from the past month.
The first is the most recent sketched from a hospital window.


A local church sketched from the supermarket car park. (My locations are so romantic!)


An old  villa sketched from the back and  the railway station car park.  (I admit that some of our car parks have good views)



A house in a nearby village, I like the higgly piggly arrangement of Sicilian villages.

Hello Cathy,
Thanks for posting and letting us into your sketchbook world. You go to all the best carparks.
Wonderful sketches - all of them. I'm so glad you posted these.

These are great. Are you using an ink pen for the lines? I like how you seem to know exactly how much line is enough without having the lines overwhelm the colors and shadows. Very nicely done!

Lovely sketches!
Wherever you go you seem to find an interesting view !
The window is particularly colourful !

Katherine - I used a Lamy Safari pen with Lexngton grey ink on all except the church, which was pencil. My sketchbook is a small 'Venezia' by Fabriano.
Thanks for the comments!

Cathy, I am moved by the way you find beauty and romance while staying in places like hospitals and supermarkets. I love this series of sketches! I hope you'll never stop ffinding beauty everywhere!

Jane said...

I echo Lucia's comments about your ability to 'see' what is around you when you are going about the necessities of life! These are really delightful sketches, and it's great to share in the views that Sicilians live with daily!

Jennifer Edwards said...

And I love that your sketches reflect where your life takes you...romantic spots or not! These are lovely sketches Cathy!

Hi Cathy, Wish we had carparks with views of such beauty. Perhaps I am not looking hard enough. Thanks for showing your wonderful sketchbook.

Great work Cathy!!

Dan Kent said...

Great sketches!! I can honestly say that the views from our hospitals and supermarkets are not quite as good as yours. I especially like the first one.

Thanks for sharing your sketches. You always capture the atmosphere so succesfully. You just live in such a wonderful place - even the car parks have nice views!
