Try as I may, I don't get nearly as much drawing from nature as I'd like. First the oven broke down, then there was a fault on the phone and today I've had to get down to some research for my next book.
By six o'clock I feel that I've just got to break free and sketch something natural - anything natural.
So, here I am sitting on a sack of wood chippings at the neglected end of the garden sketching cow parsley (rather stunted, since I cut it back a few weeks ago) nettles, dock and cleavers. The pony chomps and snorts at the other side of the hedge. A wren emerges from the hedge and I wonder if it might have a nest in there.
Then, would you believe it, the ink cartridge in my pen starts to run out! It's been one of those days.
