Overtoun House. fountain pen (Rotring ArtPen M & EF lovely pens!).
tree stump, charcoal (vine charcoal, Conte 2B Charcoal pencil, Conte Sanguine pencil)
I'm much more used to drawing still life from photographs, but today I got outside with the aim of drawing something. Both drawings were a bit harder because I had to hold the paper awkwardly. The building was a lot more complex than I thought when I started, it was gettingn cold too so I think I was beginning to rush things towards the end. The tree stump - I'm not even sure if it's recognisable as that, I find it hard to draw things like this that are complex but without any real recognisable shape, like drawing rocks and things. I guess it's good practice at drawing exactly what I am seeing.

Pencil Drawing. Some figure practice, drawn from a Dr Sketcheys photo posted on facebook. I was trying to reduce the noise levels and accidentally made it red but I quite liked it so I kept it like that. Unfortunately Jpeg images can't handle pure colour very well so it turned out even more blurry when I uploaded it!!
Update: Aha, I made it a .png file and that fixed it! (the blurry one is the crappy jpeg for comparison)
