Shard Reflections, live pastel drawing session

Here’s another one of my daily drawings, which you can catch live on my Instagram every day. In this video, you can watch me capture the strong reflections cast on the River Thames on a bright day in London. Working from sketches I did on a boat on the River Thames, I had just 30 minutes to complete this piece. Setting myself a time limit really helped to loosen up my mark-making and ensure that I do not get too caught up with fine details. I focussed on depicting the light bouncing between the water and the buildings, and the sharp shadows cast.
