Welcome! Hope you see some artwork that pleases you, if not now, maybe next time…

Walk and sketch 1

A post for Sketchercise.

With a little bit of time on my hands I put on my heavy hiking boots..urgh.. and took off for a walk. All the flowers on shrubs have made room for berries of all colours. Since I am in the process of noting all the fauna and flora in this area, I dragged along my  sketching palette, which is boringly still the same as you’ll see in this link, except that my sketchbook might be the small moleskine or the normal one…watercolour of course. I like the paper of the watercolour moleskine.

Tokala and Aiyani tailed along, until they realized to their horror that we were going further than normal. That had them plonk down under the apple tree, all the while complaining about my imbecility. On my promise to give them joghurt back home, they sulkily agreed to wait under the apple tree. I kept my promise.

…prunellier and aubepine…

  1. Ooh, I couldn’t believe the berries in France, just growing wild amongst the foliage – lovely to have this reminder, your free style of sketching suits them so well. A fabric with these pages on would be gorgeous!

    Long, long ago, I had curtains with blackberries and rose hips as a pattern, very much like this. (And isn’t it convenient that dock is found near nettles;-) )
