Drawing on Location

By Justin Gerard

Annie and I are currently on a short tour of England and are staying near the Lake District. It has been a great opportunity to do some studies and drawings on location.

Stand still you wooly little villains!

Animals it seems, are much easier to draw when you have food. 
Good morning sir, may I offer you a delicious husk of old bread crust?

The trick to drawing on location is to look very, very serious. 

Trees are a bit easier than goats. They don't require being paid off to pose for you.


  1. Hi Justin and Annie! Hey, you are in my neighborhood! Why don't you stop by for a cup of coffee and a glass of sljivovitsa--you remember? That shattering drink that helps people draw and paint better. :-)
    Have a great time in good-old England!

  2. Welcome to this little island. I hope it is kind to you in all the right ways.

  3. ...MMMM, yes Sljivovitsa and Petar and Anita´s special coffee....If you guys bring the goat, I´ll bring a (Christmas) tree....have a lot of fun in the UK!!

  4. Always an excellent and funny post :)
