In my last post I wrote that I had brought some old sketch books back from my former gallery. Among them I found the sketches I did in Summer 2007, on the 10 week trip we did in The Boomobile (our motorhome) from the South of Spain through France to the Top of Scotland and back. Most of them are only ink sketches, and I am working now on adding some colours to them, in pastel or watercolour. I have started with some sketches from the Peak District, in the U.K. Not quite easy for me because of all these green tones, and I am normally not a fan of the green colour (except in Susan Cornelis‘ paintings!).
I am enjoying doing this work now, almost 2 years after the trip. Many wonderful memories are coming back to my mind, even if the 6 weeks we spent in the U.K. were all the time under rain and I swore to myself: never again in the U.K. for holidays!
PS: I already chnaged my mind… next time we will go to Devon and Cornwall!
