I was in Camden this morning so I stuffed my camera into my bag before I left and was lucky enough to spot a narrow boat passing through the canal lock. I took quite a few photos again but decided to go with this one for today because, like yesterday, I like the wider angle.
I can see this church from my living room window and started this drawing last Sunday. I’d no sooner begun that I was wondering what I’d got myself into. I kept drawing until things started to look a bit more wonky and then left it for a while.
It seemed like such a daunting drawing that I kept avoiding going back to finish it but at the same time I felt like I wanted to ‘draw a line under it’ before moving on to the next one, like it was hanging over me a bit.
So today I got back to it, finished off the brick and stonework (mostly) and decided that I wouldn’t draw any more of the building. As far as I know, there’s no rule that says I have to draw the entire church or nothing at all. It’s going to stay incomplete but with a bit of colour and that’s OK. Now I feel like I can turn the page and move on. Phew!
Today I spent some time looking back at some of the photos I took during 2013. I thought that I’d not really used my camera all that much last year but I was surprised to find that I’d taken photographs during every month.
Looking back over all these pictures took a long time but it reminded me of things I’d forgotten and brought back back some fond memories. I thought I’d share one or two images from each month to sum up some of 2013.
