With the effect that Covid has had on our travel as well as social lives, coupled with the weather recently, I have found new time to get back to my drawing and painting.
These two works are studies of the same scene, one in oils and the other in pen and ink. The different approaches to the same scene required me to relearn techniques that I have neglected in the recent past and can now build on in the future work I do.
I painted first. Then I couldn’t stop thinking about how it would be with just ink, and yes it affected how I saw the details for the ink one.
I’m not sure I’m done with that photo, I keep thinking it would be interesting in different shades of Paynes Grey. That’s probably the next one.

Totally different feelings with each version.
I absolutely love the pen & ink.
The change of media makes such a difference and a great idea. I can see how it would get creativity stirring. Really like the pen and ink.
I particularly like the pen and ink version. Looks a it like a stark black and white photo.
I really like the pen and ink! A Paynes Grey version would be very interesting.
I like them both – one muted and moody, the other stark and striking. Beautiful!
