I PICKED UP this fingernail-sized tellin shell on the saltmarsh at Grange-over-Sands
when I was drawing there a couple of weeks ago, a detail that I’m adding to my page
of location drawings.
Tellins are a favourite food of the waders that flock to Morecambe Bay.
This saggy bag (right) turned out even saggier in my drawing so I turned to a subject
with more definite form; my left hand.
I’m continuing to find this new brown ink, Noodler’s El Lawrence, useful for my pen
and watercolour drawings.
