Once a week I meet up with some friends to paint together. In the summer we paint outside in my friend's lovely garden. It's not a posh garden, it's the sort with plant pots piled up in the corner and herbs growing in a variety of containers. Often it's a source of inspiration for sketches and paintings and on this occasion a row of cactus in matching pots the sun lighting them up from behind that caught my eye. This sketch is unfinished so I cropped it down for now but I think it would make a good painting one day?
These two cats were waiting expectantly under a window for a little something to be thrown their way.
Sketched quickly in the station carpark and colour put on at home.
