Waterlilies for the Sketchbook...
Some of my water lily studies in pencil
So during this cold snap I have been ultra-busy trying to get my sketchbook sorted out at the same time as my portfolio work. I am going away to Bristol for a short spell and hope that I will get most of my mixed flora completed then. If not, then I will be handing in with diploma course 8! Boris and Polly aren't completed either, so the race is on. I am trying to pace myself though. After drawing all day I feel like I can't do anything in the evenings, so I relax. It is remarkable how tiring drawing can be... it really uses the brain. It's like learning a new language and we all know how exhausting that can be!
