From My Sketchbook 11



About Don

I love life. Sometimes it makes sense, other times not. Discerning its underlying patterns and beauty always provides great reward and meaning and is a passion I ineptly follow. I feel deeply attached to nature and love the sea with its distinct moods and colour and find walking along its beaches wonderfully inspiring. Writing, sketching and photography is a sheer joy for me and the blog is one of the places I am able to express these pursuits.

  1. Wow Don! This might be my new favourite of yours, and would eagerly purchase this piece if I could – if I saw it in a gallery for sale. The sky is spectacular, and the landscape colours draw me right in. It is wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing your creative talent here with us. ­čÖé Gina

    I agree with Gina, your sky is alive and moving. Sky is difficult to capture! I like the depth and the tones you have given to your plant life. I’m sketching the variety of leaf I can see from my lounge window as I rest up, and I’m learning there’s a technique to giving leafy bushes life! Love it that you share your sketches, Don. Do you have a title for this one?

      Enjoy your sketching Kathy and I hope you’re getting well. You’re right, there is a technique. I really struggle with it. No, I don’t have a title for it, Kathy.


  3. Beautiful. You are so incredibly talented.

  8. Lovely, I keep thinking I’ll get back to my art but something is stopping me…probably me!
