Bleak fishing – Ink in a Watercolour Moleskine
I sketched these two guys, yesterday, from the comfort of my car. I’m not sure they appreciated my interest as the conditions got wetter and wetter. I was quite safe as there was a stretch of water between us. They must be keen.
PS I’m sending some of this rain to all you drought stricken Moleskiners. We are fed up with it.
It should arrive in about nine days.
I was thinking about this month’s theme challenge and came up with this idea…decided to try it out and I think it came out all right. The scanner washed out the horizon line, but I think the feeling of a bleak, desolate landscape still came through.
The September 2009 Challenge is:

Pencil and a small WN watercolor box with a water brush in a pocket moleskine.
Cave bear (Ursus spelaeus)
I did this one, 2 years ago, for an educational board for Bijambare reserve, which has 7 caves. It was an EC financed Project led by my(humbe)self. We did tourist paths within the longest cave (420 m), illumination, toilets, parking, Info-house, promo-materials, Info-boards, brochures, film, radio jingle, etc. We used photographs and technical drawings for everiting else, but there were no photos of the cave bear, and available illustrations were copyrighted, so I did it myself.
Not so long ago (in geological terms) such bears used to live there…
