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

  • Out Work

    On Saturday I went for a walk to the woods with my young nephews. We had a snack while sitting on a fallen branch and then collected some fallen treasures on our way back.

    Once back, my 5 (and three quarters) year old nephew arranged our treasures on a little table in the garden - 

    We then drew it, side by side at the little table in the garden. He on a large piece of paper and a pencil selected from my tin, and I in my sketchbook with the graphite stick.

     

  • Sketching in the rain

    Last Saturday, my friend Kath and I went on a wet weather sketching adventure. 

    It was so wet that we wore full waterproofs and both were armed with a large umbrella each.

    I found a couple of different positions to draw from, this one (below) being the first. A forked branch above me made the perfect place to hang my umbrella and I was able to sit underneath it in the dry. I had a seating mat with me as I didn't trust how waterproof my trousers were, plus it provides a bit of comfort.
