EDM Challenges 31 and 88
Studio 15 April '07
Today was a fantastic day here in the Fens, the hottest I can remember for a long time.
To celebrate, I moved some furniture around in the studio so I could access the French doors and I swung them open wide onto my new little patio where I sat in my white rattan chair, facing the old open barn to sketch the washing line for the EDM challenge #88 'Something Breezy'.
Watercolour and pigment liner
I recently came across a box of collectable hats and shoe trinket boxes I had forgotten about, so I decided to decorate my studio with them and chose 'Violet' as my subject for the EDM challenge 'Something you collect' Coloured pencil, pigment liner and watercolour
The rest of the day was spent enjoying the sunshine, clipping few shrubs in the garden and preparing a traditional roast ~ Far too hot for a roast really but according to my family 'it's not Sunday without a roast'.
My eldest Son bowled his first hat trick in a cricket match today and told us all about it as we sat outside and saw in the night together. A wonderful day!
