The Penny Has Dropped
This is Wednesday. A short drive into Chatteris purely for sketching, the clippings from the weekend's hedge trimming, a cigarette break and a little TV before bed...Nothing special to read about if it was written in word but art makes everything so much more interesting doesn't it!
I have been missing double spreads in my sketchbook. I stopped creating them when I took on my newspaper column thinking the line through the middle would prove a problem in print. However, what I failed to see, until last week, was that I could still produce spreads if I didn't cross the page while drawing...Doh!
Why is it that the simple things can often be invisible to us?
Anyway, the penny has finally dropped, as the saying goes, and here is what these two pages look like in my beautiful Birthday book side by side.
