At each destination they are given a poker card and the one who wins the poker hand at the end wins the event
Breakfast conversation this morning was along the lines of as the Williams test driver Suzi Wolff is of the female persuasion could The Stig in fact be a woman.
Anyway if you find a photo that you want removed for one reason or another the way to approach this is to email me, address on the sidebar, the web address of the page it appears on, how many pictures down the page it is and a rough description of the picture. If the request is reasonable I will remove it.
I will endeavour to ramble on here............. Rambling on now.
Have you noticed how you don’t seem to get as much lead in your pencil these days? Brushes seem much as they were, but pencils seem to be thinner on the inside.
I have been working on sketching while standing up today, you wouldn’t think this would be particularly difficult, but I find it so.
We have been shopping at Westwood Cross, this started well as I spent some time in Hobbycraft unscrewing the tops of watercolour tubes to see what colour the paint was and eventually bought a very large sheet of paper.
Anyway as I don’t think I can watercolour paint standing up unless I make some specialist paint box that clips to my sketchpad in some way and contains water I have been looking at the dry media.
I don’t really like painting from photographs and can’t really explain why, there is plenty one can say but that’s how it is.
I am in the very early stages of using better and drastically more expensive paper.
Here is the sketch I used for the painting, drawn looking at the castle mostly through trees, so you couldn’t really tell what shape it is at all.
I used my big paintbox which has loads of colours that I don’t understand, Vandyke Brown, Cadmium Yellow and Brown Madder were the extra ones i used in this picture, I use Brown Madder Alizarin quite a bit and didn’t realise that they haven’t made that colour for about thirty years, the replacement tube wasn’t what I expected.
