It’s Sketch Book Skool time of year! I have signed up to six weeks of ‘Stretching’ with Jonathan Twingley as our first teacher and it has given me a timely nudge to loosen up away from my formal architectural drawings. So, as a change from streets, here are a few pages from my sketchbook made over the weekend.
Starting with a long wait in the fracture clinic and a great excuse to draw a few faces, I’m pleased to say that all my fractures are well on the mend and I have now been signed off.
Our first Sketchbook Skool assignment with Jonathan Twingley has been playing around with ink splats – drawing freely in ink and seeing what takes shape. His work is extraordinary and well worth having a look.
This has been a great weekend to draw as we have had our friends Bill and Lucky Steve here, a winning Stoke game and another whisky festival to draw:
Finally, this great weekend was rounded up by a meal out and a musical treat.
We first listened to Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar play at the 2014 Shrewsbury Folk Festival – they were brilliant! Last night they were playing in Shrewsbury at the Morris Hall. They really are excellent and worth a listen, you can hear some of their tracks through the links on their website.
Back to normal with the next post – I have just completed Micklgate, York which will soon appear on the website www.drawingthestreet.co.uk.
Thanks for reading.

Great likeness of Jonathan Twingley!! Glad to see you enjoyed Reaction to Action exercise….I just didn’t….his work is very, very inspiring! Lovely work here as usual!!
Thanks Rebecca 🙂 I have found drawing dreams one step too far though as I woke up fresh from having the whole labour party decide to run their campaign from my parents house – except it wasn’t the labour party and it wasn’t our old home – you know how dreams work! I enjoyed the ink splats though. I drew Jonathan’s pic upside down (the paper not me!) to concentrate on shapes and shade so it was a surprise when I turned it round. Jonathan’s work is extraordinary! A great teacher to start off with. Thanks for taking the time to comment.
