27° C, 59% humdity is too sultry
for me. Having been wrapped up in writing all week, I seem to have
lost my fluency for drawing anyway. I'm looking forward to fresher
days and to finishing the writing and design stage of my book.
In the meantime, sitting indoors where it is slightly cooler, I
draw our greenhouse; a suitably simple subject which is sitting
there in my field of view, down the garden path and beyond the shrub
bed. We bought this Westdock aluminium greenhouse as an extra when
we bought this house, 22 years ago, and it had been standing in
the garden - in the middle of the garden, we soon moved it - for
some years already. They don't make them like this any more.
Needless to say, I've got the ventilators and the door fully open
today. The broken panes of glass that I keep meaning to replace
also help improve the ventilation.
Purely by coincidence, when I wrote my diary for this day in 2002
(see link below) I wrote about the other structure in the
garden; the shed. Hey, try and stay awake; there's sure to be
something more exciting in the diary soon!
