Hello again!

Here's the next page of my ongoing natural world sketchbook project - forget-me-nots, from the garden.

Sketching at Gransden and Waresley Woods

I snuck out for a couple of hours today and had a nice wander around a local nature reserve. Spectacular bluebells!

Birthday kitty

Been keeping my evenings busy with this one, a birthday pressie for the other half... yep, it's the cat being helpful again!

Sketching at Wimpole Hall

Just a couple of sketches at the National Trust's Wimpole Estate...

The house, and the folly ruins. I spent a very lovely afternoon basking in warm early spring sunshine!

Natural world sketchbook, next page

Here's the next entry in my ongoing natural world sketchbook/journal.

I have to admit I have no idea what kind of tree this twig came from - I picked it up off a footpath in Cambridge. This was done with watercolour pencils and water-soluble graphite pencils.

Bleak and beautiful, a winter painting

Hello all!

This is a mixed media and collage painting I've entered in the Jackson's Art/Strathmore Wonders of Winter competition on Facebook. It's based on an earlier ink and watercolour sketch (it's on p4).

You need to be logged in to FB to vote, so if you're on there, pop on over and check out all the entries, and vote for your favourites. Personally I'm pleased to see the back of winter!

Natural world journal, next page...

Next page, pencil this time. This is a twig of (I think, trying to remember what the leaves looked like) an ash tree, knocked off next door's tree by a delivery truck. Being the good neighbour I am I went and picked up the debris, and pocketed this broken-off end to draw :-)
