How to Draw a Cat Roaming in the Woods at Night

 






















A quick fun sketch. Few nights ago, I walked back home through a stretch of road where all street lights were out. Moon was shining so bright that it illuminated the slightly wet road. I came home and couldn’t wait to sketch the scene and I couldn’t resist to add a cat to the scene.

Caerphilly Castle


I visited Caerphilly Castle on 26 August. It's a truly magnificent and commanding castle. Built in 1200s, it’s the largest castle in Wales. The sketch here depicts the Cadw Dragons in their lair and the 'leaning' south-east tower of the castle. A dramatic scene to sketch!   If you are interested in seeing my sketch process and more about the castle, go check out my vlog below.

Belle Vue Park, Newport, South Wales


 





























I visited Belle Vue Park, a large Victorian public park in Newport which opened in 1894. One of the main features here is Belle Vue Park Tearoom! I walked around it and finally chose the spot under the shelter of the bandstand which allowed me to sketch the tea house under shade. I like how one of the ornamental pillars of the bandstand frames the tea house!

Travel Sketch Vlog : St Fagans Museum of History


I was happy to visit St Fagans Museum of History on 3 June 2022 again! Upon seeing Stryd Lydan Barn, a cruck and timber-framed barn, which dates from 1550, I decided to stay there to sketch this historic structure. I really liked the textured surfaces of the old wood. To capture the textures, I spent much time drawing the lines to depict the wood surfaces. I hope you enjoy my video!

Sketching at Bryngarw Country Park



On 24 March, I went hiking in Cowbridge and visited a number of places. Along the way I stopped at Bryngarw Country Park to sketch. Time was tight so I did a quick pencil sketch there and when I was home, I finished the sketch with walnut ink and gouache.
