The Sword & The Scroll 🗡My pencil drawing of this interesting statue I saw on the exterior walls of a church in San Telmo area of Buenos Aires, Argentina. 🇦🇷
El FlamencoMy pencil drawing of one of the flamingos I saw in San Pedro De Atacama desert in northern Chile. I also did some watercolour & gouache plein air paintings of the Atacama Desert Landscape in Chile while I was cycling around alone, doing my own tour. That was an incredible experience. You can see my watercolour & gouache paintings on my paintings page.
Air of SilenceA little made up story for my latest travel sketch in Brazil, inspired by the original photo reference I took when exploring Yunnan Province, China, 2011. ‘The morning mist spread across the almost empty town. An air of silence fell upon every ear and passer by, only distance footsteps and shuffling of the animals in their barns could be heard. There was a mysterious and haunting atmosphere, which seemed to enclose around all of the old huts and houses that the once happy locals had occupied. Now, as if abandoned, signs of human life and homely love around these man made structures were absent, no family at home. Where had they gone? Surely not all had gone to work? Surely they still lived here? In rural China, it seemed these strange and precarious old buildings, naturally exuded this melancholy air of silence. And it was pervasive, it was all around, as if a sad memory had befallen the the area, forever etched into the structures and buildings that had once breathed life. What happened here?...
Father & SonHow much do you value quality family time? And what is it you like to do the most with them? 💚Father and son Brazilian familia I saw on the beach in Maceió, and later drew in my sketchbook.
Unseen BattleMy graphite pencil drawing of character John Snow, from the Game of Thrones, ‘Battle of The Bastards’. I created a series of drawings and paintings inspired by the series. The first series I watched from start to finish.
The Struggle - European Marble Sculpture Drawing This is my second A5 pencil drawing of a series looking at my own photo reference of one of the marble sculpture statues inside the European section of the Louvre Museum in Paris.
A Moments Recovery - European Marble Sculpture I returned home to Brighton, England and rediscovered some of my photos from my second trip to the Louvre museum in Paris... This is a A5 drawing of mine that I made looking at my own photo reference of one of the marble sculpture statues which I came across when exploring the European section of the Louvre.
Almost There - European Marble Sculpture Drawing This is my third Louvre Museum marble sculpture drawing study of a European man. A5 pencil on paper.
A Storm Is Coming - European Marble Sculpture DrawingThis is my fourth Louvre museum pencil drawing. A5 Pencil on paper. I don’t think I chose the best photo reference out of my photos for this pencil/value study, the lighting on the sculpture didn’t really reveal much contrast on the form, as only a fraction of direct spotlight was hitting it. But I chose to study this particular sculpture more for the pose/foreshortening/emotion/expression which really stood out from the rest. I was also listening to one of Jordan Peterson’s most recent interviews, and in it he was talking about the psychological persona and shadow, the hero’s journey, life being a struggle and tragic... this particular sculpture I thought resonated quite well with what he was talking about, maybe that’s partly why I chose to draw it. So here is Day 4, another Louvre Museum marble sculpture drawing study.

Old Desert Folk Have you ever wondered what it must be like to live in the desert away from the city lights?Here in San Pedro you can step outside your bedroom at night, look up at the sky and on display is the stunning milky way galaxy and all of the shooting stars that leave you with a sense of wonder and awe with every single glance. During the day the heat is intense, but volcanos, canyons, crystal clear lagoons and a surprisingly large amount of greenery and wide range of colours inspires, uplifts and energises you. These are my drawings of some of the old locals of the past from San Pedro. ☀️
