A word from Alice - studio stories from Alice Draws the Line

  • Beach days

    I challenged myself to do some speedy surfer sketches! There was a surf school and they were going through the different poses needed for surfing. 

    They didn’t stay still for any length of time and so working quickly was essential!

  • A few days in Pembrokeshire

    Back in August (2023) I had a lovely few days in Pembrokeshire. I thought I’d share some of the sketches that I did there. 
    This was one evening. The others decided to have an evening walk along the headland. I couldn’t resist the lure of the picnic bench and view to set up my watercolour pad and paint the view while they were stretching their legs. 
  • Back to Borth beach

    This extract hopefully shows some of the brush marks I was working with. The sky was amazing - blue but with streaks of white wispy clouds. Hard to achieve with watercolour without white or masking fluid, and so I added just the blue for the sky and left out spaces for the white clouds. 

    I was also working with a partially dry brush to try and create the white horses at the shoreline - I started to want to really play with this and develop it - but prolifically filling pages and stopping them blow away in the middle of a birthday picnic didn’t feel the right thing to do!
