Drawing in the Spring

April 10th, 2017

Now it’s Spring and the weather has been lovely I really enjoy drawing in gardens and parks. The light creates beautiful shadows which I’ve included in some of the drawings.


Leiden market

I had a few hours to myself so headed to Leiden market. It’s always busy on a Saturday especially now Christmas is coming up. I enjoy sitting outside cafes with a coffee and my sketch book. I planted myself opposite a fruit and veg stall and kept swapping seats to get different views and perspectives.

Heading home I stopped off at the park and was struck by how autumnal it looked. Generally the trees are looking much more skeletal but the trees here had an amazing orange glow in contrast to some darker green leaves.
