Super sketches, Thalia.

Great to see sketchbook work. These are super drawings, it's easy to see the attraction for you.

Just to prove that everything has interest for a true artist. Nice work Thalia.

Excellent sketches, Thalia.

Great sketches Thalia are you going to enter them for the automobile competition, 😀

Thank you very much, Seth, Lewis, Jim, Sandra and Linda. I have been passing this scene for about two years, Meaning to draw it. Till a couple of weeks ago there was another elderly lorry as well. When it disappeared I decided it was high time to get on with it in case this went too! Yes, Linda I will enter it, Anyone who has been to Gozo a few years ago will remember ancient vehicles abandoned in fields. They have now been removed [perhaps to this yard!]but I have several photos of them and love their rust and deep shadows. Done many sketches and paintings. Think it will make a good series for a winter project! Thanks All for your really kind comments! Just for the record, this really IS the VRT testing station yard! We don't call it MOT!

Thank you Margaret!

Hang on Studio Wall

In each of these small sketches I have used a different medium, including oil pencils. My favourite is the pure watercolour on the left hand page which I did with no pencil sketch, it took only about 5 minutes and I just feel it says everything! I intend to use the sketches in more finished paintings in the Winter months.
