Leaves in water


A busy day in the office today and it was great to get outside in the fresh air for an hour at lunch. Even better to use the time sketching. I sat outside the Sottish Parliament by the water pools and drew these Autumn leaves floating on the surface. It was a challenge to capture the difference between the leaves on the surfacse and those that had sunk to the bottom. How do you reckon I did?

Below is a photo I took on location to give you some scale of my sketches, all of which are available to buy as limited prints (from £12) or as the original (from £48). Email me HERE for more details.
