Approaching Rain ~ Daily Sketch 06/01/2015

Approaching Rain - Watercolour

I decided to leave the boats out of this view as they seemed to interfere with the simple composition of sky/marsh/water.

Marshes in the Fog ~ Daily Sketch 04/01/2015

Marshes in the Fog - Watercolour + Pencil

Today's effort in the freezing fog, I could see almost nothing and lasted a wimpy 10 minutes but at least made some marks on paper.

The Old Lady Mug ~ Daily Sketch 03/01/2015

The 'Old Lady Mug' ~ Watercolour & Pencil

This old fashioned floral mug has been in service in our house for about 20 years. I can't actually remember how we came by it, I have always loved the blue floral design and the completely circular handle, it holds just the perfect amount too.

Simon 'Golly' Gamble 
17/01/1967 - 02/01/2014 

It's a year ago today that this fine man passed away, a good man. Golly always made me smile and left me feeling better for having been in his company.

01/01/2015 New Year's Day. 'View Towards the Packing Shed' ~ DailySketch

First day of the new year brings damp, windy, grey conditions to our island, however I start as I mean to go on with a watercolour sketch. From the window of my studio I can see the choppy, cold creek emptying but there is an almost complete absence of colour.
