I am sure that drawing from the TV isn’t everyone’s kind of thing. But I find it good fun and a good exercise – you have to be prepared and you have to be quick. It helps you to loosen up your drawing. I love visiting Iceland and being able to draw directly from nature and have been there on holiday a few times since I lived there for some months in the late sixties. TV will always be next best.
For these (very quick) sketches I painted the paper beforehand, knowing what the colours would be like and I held a handful of crayons (neocolour II) in my left hand so I didn’t need to waste time looking for them.
