So I’m still taking a break from sketching while my wrist heals so I thought I’d do another post of sketches I hadn’t intended to post. I’m really missing the sketching but glad I’ve enough old material to continue posting, think I must be hooked on blogging!
On a separate note, I went to acupuncture today for the first time to get treatment on the wrist and found the whole experience fascinating – who knew that sticking a needle in my left foot could take away the pain from my right wrist?! Amazing! The pain came back a few hours later but I loved the experience and found the whole philosophy behind it so interesting, really looking forward to the follow up treatments.
Anyway, getting back to the post, these are a few sketches I did last year of bridges along the river Liffey in Dublin. Again, these are sketches I’d love to revisit and try to improve on at another time.
This one was done with watercolours and pastels. I think I’m a bit fascinated with the view of Butt Bridge in the mornings and the light of the sun rising somewhere out in the Irish sea.I’d love to be able to paint this view well some day.
This was one of my first attempts using acrylic paints.
