Pretty In Pink

Sketch from a sketch and walk this afternoon. I spent the day with friends and didn't sketch at all - although a very cool craft project was happening in the background. I managed to score a piece that was unused- made with bubble wrap. I then just so happen to find a apricot-pink house on my walk that caught my eye...a little splashing of opera pink and I now have this crazy explosion of colour in my sketchbook. I have to remember to wait for the paint on the page to dry if I want defined splashes.

And last night...
Instead of Friday night Baroque... It was Friday night Scottish Baronial (or is it Scottish Baronial Revival)...anyway I was thinking about Scotland and when I saw this photo of Eilean Donan just had to splash around some paint...yes, yes, it is from a photo...but I don't happen to have a Scottish castle nearby....

I really feel the need to do some home exercises from photos at the moment as my on location sketches are not quite turning out the way I want to them to... I have mentioned before that I am so compulsive when it comes to sketching on location, rarely think, just respond, that for me, I feel that I have to re-train my reflex response.

This is a really quick splashing on of paint late in the evening when I should have been stopping for the evening...
