Still deep in bigger projects.  Progress is slow. Here are some more landscape sketches.  Sticking to routine of prompt and working on them for about 30 minutes.  Lots of buildings here.  Next task to practice cleaner lines when executing these.

A lot of work this week but work is still in progress.  Above is a study prompt from Bjorn Hurris' stream.  Tried to give the sense of light and dark.  It kind of follows on from the previous study.  
  Below is a work in progress.  Really stretching on this one so we will see how it turns out.  There have been a few modifications of this draft but the overall composition remains the same.

This is a selection of landscape sketches.  They are about 30 minutes each done with pen and ink in response to a random prompt.  This is to practice getting landscape ideas down.  I will start to work on composition and values.    

The last is a copy of an oil painting After RuoLi who manages to create amazing textures. It was interesting to do something like this after concentrating on working with linework for so long.  It was done just by painting.

 So a week of probably the most diverse set of arty activities in a while.  This month is about trying stuff out of my comfort zone and doing studies which it turn out is hard work.  I started a lot of projects these are some I finished so far.
