Jaffa in the Sunshine

It looks like another year without winter here. I drew this during an Urban Sketchers sketch crawl, but since the sun was right in my face and it was blazing hot (31 degrees centigrade), I didn’t place the shadows properly.

#Inktober 17: Swollen

My favourite prompt so far because it gave me an excellent excuse to draw the pufferfish.

Place de la Sorbonne sketch

I had less than 20 minutes for this one, so it came out all wrong in terms of the proportions of the Sorbonne building, but by the time I realised this it was too late, and I had a plane to catch. Posting this here because even mistakes have some charm to them.

Luxembourg Gardens sketch

A quick sketch in Luxembourg Gardens, Paris on a Stillman and Birn pocket Alpha. Still learning how much water this paper can take, and that’s the first use of a Uniball Signo white pen for the water in the fountain. I’m very pleased with this little trick I learned in the Urban Sketchers Symposium in Porto.
