He Is Home

Jake is home safe and sound and he's had the perfect 'lads' holiday with lots of booze and late nights...I can say that out loud now because he's home, safe, here, with me!

I was 'The Artists Model' for March Art Group this morning which I really enjoyed. (I was clothed)

A very quick view from the studio window in watercolour first thing this morning, between drying my hair with the studio hairdryer, and today I gathered the seeds from the very first poppy seed pod this year in the garden.

*Sketchbook note of interest:
This sketchbook hates water, especially when using both sides of a sheet. It far too quickly turns to tissue and the surface bobbles terribly. I'm finding it frustrating. I may have to change journals for the school Summer break, those five weeks of journalling are far too important to me to have the paper let me down, I record them for Harry to give to him when he's older.
The A5 size is great to work with though, after so many A6 journals recently.

Hi! Loving your blog! Is this the Moleskine sketchbook?

Thanks Kathrin :)

Quilt Knit, thnakyou! This is the Hahnemuhle D&S sketchbook, I purchased it from the SAA shop online. I imagine it would be wonderful for coloured pencil work.
