Drawing again

We went away for a few days to the New Forest, staying in a mobile home on the same Forest Park on which our daughter and her three children were staying - in another mobile home.  It was great to have the children round in the morning and to set them all to drawing with a brand new set of Sharpie pens which I'd bought for them, and a stack of printer paper. 

As I'd just been working through Paul Heaston's Craftsy course myself I had a go at one of his panoramic drawings of a room interior.  Have to say I loved doing it.


As soon as I'd finished it I realised I'd got in too close to the subject and so had lost any context of the caravan itself.  So the next morning I turned round and drew facing the other direction towards the windows at the front of thy caravan.


This seems to work rather better so when I got home I did another one of our back room


Again a little too close-in, so this weekend I'm going to do one of our lounge and try to get all three walls in - ahead of me and the two sides.  I've loved doing these and highly recommend Paul's course, Sketch Your Point of View.  A tip - don't whatever you do pay the full price of it - register with the site and you'll get endless emails from Craftsy with special offers - eventually the course you want will come up at about half the original price.
