Sequentialistical (Sequentialicious?)

Various attempts to sketch sequences of time passing, in most of my favourite media…

  1. Preparing a hot-air balloon for launch in Bath’s Victoria Park. The passengers help with the spreading out of the balloon, and help to hold it open while it is inflated by the large fan. They’re having the safety briefing in the second to last picture. This take-off failed due to high winds and the balloon never launched (bamboo dip-pen, watercolour).P1280443P1280444
  2. Another hot-air balloon launch in Vicky Park, this one was speedy and took off! (pencil and dilute gouache).arnos vale_0003 (19)
  3. The view from our backdoor over eleven hours. When I started this sequence I thought I’d be capturing ever changing clouds and skies; it then settled in to a day of unbroken overcast grey, enlivened only by the sunset… (just gouache)arnos vale_0002 (20)arnos vale_0001 (36)
  4. And finally the view at 60mph on the M4 heading East, to say farewell to a nephew who’s heading far West (to live in Canada), sketched every ten minutes or so; stunningly monotonous! (Duke Confucius Fude ink pen and light gouache)arnos vale (64)

    Fascinating sequences! I love the monotony of the last one! 😉 I’ve been on trips like that.
