Markets are great places to draw. On a busy day it’s not always easy getting your sketchbook and pens out when there are so many keen shoppers. However I managed to sit outside a cafe and draw the visitors to the flower stall opposite.

Rotterdam Cafe

February 1st, 2016

Enjoyed a lovely Saturday with friends followed by a relaxing cafe latte and apple cake at brasserie Dudok in Rotterdam. I do like sketching in cafes. Great people watching and observing the cafe interior.
Although it’s not so easy now with a 6 month old baby!

Travellers on the ferry

January 5th, 2016

Over the festive period I travelled on the ferry from Dunkirk to Dover. I generally enjoy the crossings as I find it relaxing and sometimes get the opportunity to sketch the passengers. On this occasion it was quite rough! Sketching was a welcome distraction.

A man stretched out next to me which initially I found quite irritating. Who wants a strangers stinky feet next to you! But then I took the opportunity to draw as he was fast asleep.
