Sunday Sketching -

I've been drawing larger views of the chapel the last few weeks (mostly because I abhor doing interiors and most architecture... No pain, no gain? I hate it enough that I'm bound to get better?). I do find it quite difficult to draw straight lines and parallels and right angles on my knee or in a sketchbook I"m holding in my hand, rather than on a more stable surface... ah well...

Compared to drawing in a slightly larger pad, stabilized on my desk and *copying* someone else's fabulous sketches (in this case Jean-Baptise Monge - whose fairy books are amongst my most favoritest ever). Maybe, someday, I can has drawering skillz too....?

These are lOVEly! I know about the straight line and angle thing, it's not a favourite of mine either - good practise though!xx

I can't draw a straight vertical line to save my soul, even in church!

Love your work.
