          1. How beautiful to be able to make your own music in the morning! So often wish I played an instrument. You’re from Yorkshire? All the English friends I have seem to be from Yorkshire…I’m intrigued by the place.

          2. Hi . .I live in Victoria, BC .. a long way from there .. but I love Yorkshire Tea and buy tons when it’s on sale! My violin is still in the beginning stages (I’ve had 5 lessons so far) and do love practising, it is very grounding and helps me in all areas of my life. It’s the discipline and the focus that is very gratifying!

    1. Thank you! I’m a little nervous about posting these, I’ve been so heavily influenced by Felix Scheinberger, an amazing urban sketcher. His book, Urban Watercolor Sketching, is the only painting book I took with me on my travels, so my technique has started to lean towards his…the scrawly lines, the puddles of saturated color, a lot of white paper left… I don’t feel that I can take full credit for these sketches!

  1. I always enjoy seeing your travel art. You inspire me to think that one day I might also make time on my travels for visually recording the experience with a medium other than photography. Thank you for taking the time to log on to the internet and share.

    1. The camera has made sketching nearly impossible. If I can, I take the camera one day, satisfy my desire to ‘possess’ everything by shooting it, and then go another day without the camera, so that I really have to sit down and draw something. But you need time in a place to go separate days, and sketching day should also be loner day, because companions can’t be asked to stand around for 20 minutes while you draw. Luckily, Kris was happy enough to go off on his own, and I could sit down in one spot in peace for a while. I don’t draw nearly as much as some friends I know, I am self-conscious drawing in public and find it hard to settle on a subject.

      1. My kids aren’t even patient enough to really let me consider my photographic shots so there’s no way they’d have the patience to wait for me to sketch. The one exception is that we all draw together when we visit museums and art galleries.

        1. I thought of that as soon as I wrote the comment…perhaps manipulate them to think that they want to be artists, more than anything in the world? My brother’s tactic is to wear a suit and come home after a day (of painting at a studio) talking about stocks and money and investment and stuff…he’s hoping they’ll rebel. 😉 LOL
