Hazy Autumn Peak District Sunset

I could draw (and walk) these hills and moorlands all day. Digital illustration of a distant hillside catching the late autumn sun. Burnt orange tones of bracken and moorland grasses dominate the foreground, where you can just make out the last flecks of purple heather. Two crows circle in the sky above. Inspired by the beautiful upland landscapesContinue reading “Hazy Autumn Peak District Sunset”

I’m not the most efficient person in the world, but I seriously don’t know how anybody gets anything done with a baby around). Portland Works is a lovely grungy Grade II Listed former cutlery factoryContinue reading “Portland Works Sketches”

Nether Edge Sheffield, Urban Sketch

Urban Sketchers Yorkshire, Sketchcrawl – Sheffield, 1st May 2015. Felt hugely pregnant for this one (hindsight-lol). Had to go home for a wee after this stop and didn’t catch up with the others. They must have been hiding behind a wall or something. Bit gutted as I wanted to sketch the Abbeydale Picture house with them. WillContinue reading “Nether Edge Sheffield, Urban Sketch”
