Sneak peak – going ‘outside’

img_8846img_8847

This week on Lisa Congdon’s Creative Bootcamp, it’s all about going outside. In the video lessons, Lisa draws outside but also works inside too, from photos and I’ve had to do the latter this week, as the weather hasn’t been very good and I haven’t had much time. The two photos I worked from were grabbed whilst out shopping, the top piece is one of my local department stores and the bottom piece (which is a little out of proportion with the windows on the central building), is a view across a churchyard. Not chosen deliberately but I find it interesting that both pictures are from photos taken within about 50 metres of each other, I love that mashup of old and new.

I had so been looking forward to this week’s lessons and I had planned in my head some day trips just to draw outside but with one thing and another it didn’t happen but I will do it, even if I do end up working from photos once back home again.
