Chalk pastel sketch from The Ring of Brodgar, Orkney. I kept dropping my pastels in the heather, I was using heather coloured pastels so I was searching for awhile!
Heather is a seriously beautiful plant. I looked up Heather on Wikipedia and read that is is a “lime hating” plant. I thought “so heather can never have Mojitos” before I realised that it meant the soil classification, and also that plants do not order cocktails.
Happy Earth Day! Someone please tell me the proper word for the habitat that is kinda swampy but has loads of beautiful flowers. “Swampy Meadow” can’t be a real thing but I have a horrible feeling the word I’m looking for might be “bog”. Its not bog is it?
I realise “Old Heather” sounds like it should be the name of a character from a book, probably a woman who sits on a swing chair drinking lemonade and always looks like she knows something you don’t (which she does!)
An ink drawing today because I feel guilty that I’ve been neglecting my other materials in favour of my new wax paint. There, there ink, I still love you too!
My desk is now covered in wax tools, coloured wax and how-to books! Still trying to learn the basic techniques. Here’s a waxy swamp 🙂
A birthday card for a friend. This is their puppy, Poppy. I’m enjoying painting on ragpaper so much!
Doodles on the edge of some notes. My attention span is not what it should be!
I love daises almost as much as I love this rag paper. Its so textured 😀
I love Joni Michell, her music is calming and energetic at the same time and makes me want to draw beautiful things.
