Shoot it, Sketch it: Blue door

Blue door – ink and watercolour, 220 x 205 mm, 2012.

Bec from Clouds of Colour and Alana from The Little Leaf started a new feature on their blogs this week. It’s called Shoot it, Sketch it. The idea is that you take a photo of something and then you sketch, draw or paint it. Just for fun. And I’m joining in…

Here’s my first offering. The reference photo (below) is not great quality — it was taken on my nothing-special Nokia phone which I carry everywhere mainly so that I can collect images for drawing and painting (such as this door) when I don’t have my camera with me. It’s quite handy as a phone too ; )

      Thanks, Alana. ‘Shoot it, Sketch it’ is a great idea. It’s kind of the way I work anyway – but this is going to inject a little much-needed discipline into my week. Looking forward to next Monday : )

      Thank you, Mary! I see I’m in very good company : )

      Yes, of course I accept. Thanks for the award and for your lovely words. I’d better start thinking about which bloggers to nominate…
