What a Finale!


My last postcard has arrived safely and how appropriate that it is from Katherine Tyrrell, who brought us all together through Sketchercise.

Do click on the image and you will see I've posted a large version so everyone can enjoy Katherine's beautiful fine penwork and her skilled approach to overlaying different layers of coloured pencil to achieve wonderfully natural colours.

This is certainly more painting than postcard - 16.5 x 24 cms on Arches HP.  It's a drawing of the new Chinese Pagoda in London's Victoria Park.  Such beautiful reflections in the West Lake which Katherine says is not yet full again following the major desilt operation. 

Thank you so much, Katherine.  This one is now in search of a suitable frame.

Once again, beautiful reflections, colours, composition and great to see the mark making close up - a grand finale indeed!

I agree with Cathy. The reflections are perfect and Katherine’s style of compounding the lines to make color variations is terrific. Great finale

I love the unusual image Katherine has shown us here and how she captures it in pencil is inspiring.
