Unusual umbrella views #AtoZchallenge

Bench View No 3

Usual, unique.. no.. It’s got to be.. Umbrellas. There must be lots in my sketches from the past eight months.. ahhh not really and one of yesterdays True to the view blog pose images had umbrellas in it limiting my choice.  I don’t sketch in the rain much, watercolours get a bit soggy and pencils stop working.. so it’s unusual for me to sit and see people with umbrellas.

Here’s a few times when there were umbrellas for me to sketch. The lengths we go to for our art.. .

Bench View No 33

My AtoZ Blogging Challenge is all about sketches I’ve done this past year and some benches I’ve met along the way. Most but not all of the sketches were done from benches during my walk to work and around town where I shop.

If you’ve enjoyed reading this post why not see what others are doing too during 2015 AtoZ Blogging Challenge.

    Yup, the rain is not a helpful friend when drawing. But these are beautiful works. Thankfully people use umbrellas as sun protection too!

    • You’re doing an amazing job. Volunteering on AtoZ is a huge commitment and I appreciate all the hard work behind the scenes and keeping us going.

      Thanks for the compliments. This was a bit of a late night posting. I only started this series of Bench sketches in late August so haven’t had the experience of the sun much.
