Here is icad #10- another black and white landscape, of a mountain range in the arctic, with a river cutting down the middle of the ice.
Here are three landscape icads I drew yesterday (in addition to yesterday’s icad):
Tree on Hill with Storm Above
I think this is the best?
Rays of Light Abstract
It is pretttttttty abstract, but I like the yellow cutting through the dull black and white backdrop
This was my first, which you may have been able to tell. There is two much white in it!
These are pictures I took while on holiday in Pakefield, Suffolk. We went to many different beaches, including Southwold, Aldeburgh, and Sizewell.
This icad was inspired by a photograph I took while on holiday at Deal- Lights on the Horizon at Night.
I again used 4 and 6B pencils, to smudge the colour. I like this style… I think it makes the different areas of lightness merge more smoothly, and the colour looks more solid.
You should try it If you want very light areas, put occasional lines or dashes and smudge them, or smudge a dark area of colour into the white space with your fingertip to get a light area of colour.
This is Lights on the Horizon at Night, the inspiration of my icad… a dark, abstract photograph, with a boat out at sea, its lights shining across the ocean:

I got an ice cream maker earlier this month; A Magimix De Glacier, with a 1.1 litre freezer bowl. So far Ive made two ice creams with it. The first was made with coconut milk, and it was not as such ice cream… but a slab of ice… So this time we decided we’d make try and get a better consistency and texture, using yoghurt! Following a recipe that came in the box with my ice cream maker, we made a Raspberry and Yoghurt Ice Cream (Surely that’s a frozen yoghurt? ) . Anyway, sweet, but taut, and actually looking and tasting very ice cream like, I was pretty pleased with it Here’s the recipe:
100g Caster Sugar
3ooml Yoghurt (We used St. Helen’s Goats Yoghurt, which has a thick and creamy texture; maybe this helped with the texture of the ice cream)
We served it with chopped hazelnuts and chocolate chips. You could just as easily add these to the actual ice cream; just churn the ice cream for 10 minutes, add the chocolate chips/chopped hazelnuts, and churn for another 1o minutes.
