Drawing 2

Canal Life.

Speed sketching of canal life.




Not my best sketches but with cold fingers and everything moving i’m not too displeased.

That’s the last of my canal drawing.


Sketching whilst cruising the canal.


Drawing can be challenging at the best of times but even more so when your on the move.  No sooner that you make a mark on your paper, then look up, the view has changed.

So this sketch is a bit cobbled together as we cruised the canal.

Sketching on the move will help you improve your sketching skills.

Try it for yourself.


‘4 Seasons’ in 1 day on the Canal


Sun,  snow, hail,  high winds and rain,  what a day.  It might look as though I was relaxing in this sketch but I was chief looker outter for oncoming boats around the bends.  As you can see on my sketch, it was hailing.  We were bitterly cold and I had 5 layers of clothing,  gloves and a wooley bobble hat and very glad to get to our evening mooring to jump in a hot shower to warm up.

Canal Holiday Day 3


Apologies for not blogging yesterday but lack of signal for Internet.

We spent the morning in Brecon enjoying some shops and sights of the town.  We stocked up on provisions for cooking our evening meals. A nice quaint town.  Once back on board we spent the afternoon cruising towards Talybont on Usk where we moored up for the night.  Hubby and I cooked a 2 course meal of Thai Crabb canapés for starter followed by a Salmon and Prawn  Chowder.  (Scrummy if I say so myself)

Bye for now.

Canal Holiday.

First full day on canal,  approaching Brecon,  Wales.

My first pen sketch of our Canal Holiday in Wales,  with our friends Steve and Doreen. We are approaching Brecon on a sunny early evening. And we are now ready for a meal and a well deserved drink.  We set sail early am and travelled through 5 locks and cruised the canal for 9hrs today.  A super sunny and warm day. I think we’re in for some rain tomorrow so it could be interesting. Walking into Brecon town centre for tourist shopping and to stock up on food supplies before setting sail for day…..


Naughty but Nice

I am sat at my laptop sifting through photos that I have taken at class, feeling cold and miserable as I look out my window at this ‘Orrible Weather’ today and came across this picture of ‘Mike’ from the Friday Morning class at Menheniot and it made me Smile.

Mike treated us all with scones, cream and strawberries, what a lovely treat that was.

I do enjoy my classes especially when we get goodies brought in to eat!!
