One lake x 4 views x 10 mins each

I tried a new experiment. I walked anti-clockwise around the East Lake in Victoria Park and did a small values sketch at each of the cour "corners". I was looking in a different direction for each and each took no more than 10 minutes. This is what resulted in a double page spread of my Large Sketchbook Moleskine.

I confess - I drew the frames for the sketches first so that I'd remember they all had to go on a double page spread!

The next part of the experiment was to try and see whether I could make anything of the value sketch in colour terms without the inclusion of any colour or any colour notes. Of which more in another post.

(PS. The other sketchercisers have been hard at it producing maps of their sketchercise routes using Google Maps - but I still need to do my sketchercise map for my walk in East London which involves the East Lake)

    I look forward to seeing your colour extension to this exercise. Something I need to try to do also. Following you on Twitter, so I'll know when you're done?

  2. I love doing "speed exercises" like this - just how much information can you get down in 10 minutes - it's always rewarding and surprising how much you can get down when you are really focused. Lovely sketches.
