On Location; Finicounda, 23rd April

Sketch made 'On Location' in Finicounda yesterday morning where, because a gale was blowing, I had to resort to parking my car on the jetty and use the car as a gently rocking shelter in which to make this sketch.

Tattersal Castle, Lincolnshire.

While bemoaning the truth that my drawings take me far too long to produce Galway based talented professional water-colourist Róisín Curé kindly suggested I try drawing against the clock.  This drawing, took me ten minutes to draw and a further twenty to colour.  This is far from high-speed sketching, I know,  but, as far as I am concerned a satisfactory start.  According to Róisín practising 'speed-drawing' also helps to free-up drawing style; mine could do with some of that.
