Trying to sketch in the pouring rain is difficult but gives some interesting, if transient, effects.
This was on the sketchcrawl in London I mentioned yesterday. Here I was trying to sketch one of the sculptures on the walk the line sculpture trail in Greenwich – half a boat called a slice of life. There were some great effects with the fude fountain pen and the rain but after a few minutes it had all washed away again. When we got to the lighthouse at the other side of the river it had all but completely gone. so I sketched the same structure from far away on top of the old sketch, with the O2 to the left. The paper was still quite damp and very soft and delicate but I managed to get something down that stayed long enough to be scanned.
