Sketches from East Yorkshire in September

I took a bag full of sketchbooks with me on our recent visit to the East Coast of Yorkshire, but it turns out it’s quite difficult to sketch when you’ve got a toddler. I’m sure it’s not impossible and there were moments I could have got a sketchbook out but I always feel too bad for taking my attention away from the little guy. I’m okay with that, he’s pretty fun to spend time with and I’ll get back to sketching eventually!

I did make a couple of sketches (from my head) of weather-based moments I’d been inspired by when we got back:

  1. Some hazy fields in the rain somewhere near Driffield in the Yorkshire Wolds.
  2. Sunlight breaking through the storm clouds at Danes Dyke, near Flamborough

I also did quite a few cow sketches from life (out of the cottage window). All drawings were created using the Procreate app on iPad and enhanced in PS Express.IMG_0022For those of you interested in cows, I believe they were Simmentals. They were very beautiful, and very inquisitive!
