Trying to sketch everyday

Moleskin sketch by David Meldrum

I don’t always achieve it but I do try to do a watercolour sketch everyday. This was painted late one night last week in my Moleskin watercolour journal. The paper is inferior compared to Arches but it forces me to experiment which I like. The great thing about sketches is that you can be free to play around, no pressure compared to an exhibition piece.

  1. Gooood!
    Very dynamic!
    Excess Splash, Pollock Syndrome?
    I prefer Gerhard Richter – (I was in London 2017.05.25 – Tate Art Modern Gallery-room 11)

    1. Thank you Victor! I am pleased you like my watercolour sketch.
      I like Pollock more than Richter 🙂 Some artists that influence me are as follows: Chien Chung-Wei, Nathan Ford, Chris Robinson, Alex Kanevsky and for skies I’m very inspired and learning from Sergey Temerev at the moment.
      All the best,
      David
