Drawings and Sketches
by Anne Burgoyne

Welcome to Anne Burgoyne’s drawings and sketches gallery. Anne has been uploading her work shortly after this website was born.

The most surprising thing for me was to lean that Anne did not draw for more than 35 years…. Then, in just one Sunday afternoon she sketched a composite study of wild bird heads. All I can say is: awesome after such a long time.



I am pointing out this seemingly irrelevant fact, but this is the point my friends! Anne Burgoyne has an outstanding sense for capturing animal shapes, and I must say again that this is after more than 35 years of non-artistic activity and with the arthritis in her fingers. That can be very hard and challenging.

Well, I am very happy that we can see Anne’s doodles and sketches. Please observe and learn something new. Do your own doodles, sketches or drawings and upload them here. We will be looking forward to seeing your artwork :) If Ann can do it, you can do it too :)

Enjoy Anne Burgoyne’s Gallery


The dawn fisherman - The Heron

This is a water colour A2 size using a limited palet of colours of a herron waiting on the bank above the river for breakfast to come along the early bird catches - the fish (or worm lol).
This was my first every water colour after not doing any art in this medium since I was in high school and no art since I was in my late teens a good few years ago now boo hoo hope you like it.

Done with a HB pencil this is my 1sr attempt to do a tonal value sketch. size is 1/4 imperial

The Boat on the Loch

This is my attempt at doing a mirror reflection and mist on water in the rear of the picture I did not do a lot to the background so not a lot of detail there as I was practicing mist and reflection on still water which I had not done before. This is a Water colour painting done on A3 water colour 180lb paper

texel sheep

this is a head of a texel sheep done from memory with HB pencil

Flowers in felt tips

Just a quick doodle (sketch of flowers out of my head) to try out felt tip pens.

Down on the river

This is a 5x7 inch on card painting in acrylics done to make a birthday card there is a bit of a fuzzy appearance due to there is an acetate cover on it and that reflected the light when I photographed it.

My 1st Bird Sketches

I have just taken up art again having not done any for over 35 years. I use oils and water colours back then and in school previously but not done anything until 14 weeks ago and took a leisure class in water colour painting. I never draw my picture and paint it straight off but I thought it may be good to get back to drawing as the last I did when I was 18 of Elvis and he signed it for me. It was around the same time I really stopped painting and at my age thought I would try again and hope to be able one day to make my drawings look like that which I am drawing more so the animals and peoples faces not easy as I have arthritis in my fingers but I will keep trying, this was just my Sunday afternoon doodle page in my scetch book A3 size.

Horses head

1st drawing of a horses head

Scetch Book Doodles

More little sketches done in my sketch book which I use to learn to draw. These were done in the 14 weeks after I started my art quest, I had never drawn before. The sketch books I have are thought from within my head. A few copied or base lightly on pictures seen and the odd few copied from pictures thought not many all done is a short quick space of time say 10/15 min these were done in pencil and coloured pencils

Sketch Book Doodles of Animals

My sketch book are quick doodle drawings done mainly out of my head. Some based or copied from pictures not many and some from life most are in pencil others have coloured pencil added.

Sketch Book Doodles

These are from my sketch book. I started a sketch book to help me learn to draw. I have been in to art for about 15 weeks now and had never drawn before so thought it would be a good way to start my art so all my sketch books are works done quickly most are from out of my head not copied from pictures etc a few will be from life and odd ones copied or styled on pictures.
