Back from a lovely weekend away from the building site that is my kitchen at the moment. My mum-in-law looked after us wonderfully, and provided us with a welcome break from microwave meals. I had a great time exploring the huge garden, and took over 50 photos as reference pictures for drawings. That little lot should keep me busy for a while. She also keeps a stack of gardening magazines, and it was in one of these that I found a great photo of an iris and decided to draw it. I only wished I’d taken my paints with me, but I’m sure this will be the basis of a watercolour at some point.
Having had such a restful weekend, it was a bit of a shock to the system when the plasterers arrived at 7.30 am this morning. But the new room is taking shape, and I’m excited about how it’s going to look in a week or two.
