I had some lovely comments about my little sketch in my last post, so I thought I would show you something proper wot I drew! A couple years ago, Mr Doodle and I went on a little weekend to Robin Hood's Bay in North Yorkshire. It's a beautiful spot near Whitby and Ravenscar, a little town set on the side of the cliff, with beautiful little crafty shops and a little grocer's, and a lovely beach. It was February when we went, so not exactly a spectacular day weather-wise, but I took some photos of the beach and bay, and from one of those I drew a sketch which I gave him for a birthday present.
It's now on the wall in his room (I framed it and everything, although it took a while to get a frame I thought was right) and it makes us smile whenever we see it. (I realised when I went to watermark the pictures that I didn't take one showing the frame, so you'll have to take my word for it that it looks good!)
I put that middle one in to show you it has my signature on! I realise the reflection off the glass probably ruins it but I didn't want to take it out of the frame in case I smudged it or something!
My mother recently went on holiday to the seaside (New Quay in Wales) and got some great pictures of rocks and splashing water, which I have earmarked for replication in pastels - they have great texture. I do like seasidey pictures! What do you like to draw?
