Boxed In


On Tuesday I met with some friends in Wisbech and we sketched together. I produced the top sketch, a corner of the host's lounge, taking far longer than necessary because they wouldn't stop talking...or was it me that didn't stop talking?...Nooo, it was definitely them!

The second sketch was created at home and took just a few minutes because I only had myself to talk to and, frankly, I bore easily!

Both of these sketches include boxes, the contents of the boxes in one sketch taste a lot better than the other.

Nice sketches of the boxes. Especially like this one for some reason. Like your use of ink and watercolors.

Hi Anita,

I enjoy your blog so much! I've always been attracted to watercolors. Thank you for sharing your AWESOME talent! I doodle for relaxation and have been spending a few minutes a day lately trying to learn to draw. Again thanks for the beautiful and inspirational creations!!!
