Biro Sketch

The weather is very changeable at present but on the good days spring is gorgeous here in Tuscany. This apple orchard was buzzing with bees whose hives were planted among the trees.


Biro sketch from my morning walk.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh...... Lovely landscape, lovely sketch. I envy your blossoming trees, as we are still far from. (In fact, this morning a little snow in with the rain!) I wanna come walk with you!

What a lovely biro sketch! How long did that take? I'm hopeless at sketch-walking - can do one or none!

I too love this sketch, some times it is fun to use a biro. At the moment I seem to see nothing but high rise and palm trees!

Hey Robyn, where can I get a biro? Just kidding! I love this sketch and I'd like to go walking (and biro sketching) with you and Sherrie!

Hey Robyn, where can I get a biro? Just kidding! I love this sketch! Maybe I can go walking and sketching with you and Sherrie?

Sherrie - I'm sure it's only a matter of time - before you get your Spring, and we get to walk and sketch together in Tuscany. :)

Di - About 25 minutes I think. It helped that I was using a 'second-best' sketchbook so I was prepared to have it not turn out. It really is a matter of just doing it. You'll surprise yourself. Sorry I've been a bad Blogger lately. I've had a quick look at what people have been posting but then rushed away without commenting through lack of time. Very bad manners, and I apologise.

Penny - Hello! Highrise and palm trees? That doesn't sound like Adelaide! I will have to come and see where you are.

Debbie - LOL, 'ballpoint' it's ballpoint, I know now. And as I said to Sherrie - I'm sure it's only a matter of time :)

Nice drawing, it seems to show the promise of spring. I also like the top painting (picnic lunch) in your last post.

Felicity said...

Absolutely gorgeous sketch Robyn!

Candy said...

Very nice sketch, Robyn! I love the little watercolor sketches in the previous post, too.

Robyn said...

Thank you, Sue, Candy, Felicity.

I've just been admiring at your new blog layout again, Felicity. It's lovely.

That photo makes me yearn even more to visit Italy again...and that sketch is wonderful...what a great place for a morning walk.

Amie Roman said...

Just lovely! Really captures the locale with such a simple approach.

Robyn said...

Thank you Joan, I think you would put me to shame with all your watercolours if you were here.

Amie - Many thanks. Love your latest series of prints.

I so enjoy my visits to your blog, Robyn - it's like a quick visit to Tuscany. I can't wait until the day I go for real, but for now your blog is my window.
This is so full of detail - how long did it take? I'd have to sit there all morning to record this much information.

Robyn said...

Sue - Thank you. I have a lot of catching up to do with my favourite blogs.

Casey - Thank you. I look forward to seeing you here sometime soon. I think that sketch took about 25 minutes. I thought that was rather slow. Well, slow compared to some artists we know :)

The biro sketch is just wonderful. Lovely Italian landscape. Those trees.
