What a weird time this is; life has changed beyond recognition! No walking on Dartmoor, enjoying the fresh air, freedom and exercise, most of all, NO sketching on Dartmoor, no gathering inspiration!
Okay, so that’s tough; but, I’ve realised how much I have on my doorstep – literally! The garden proving to be a veritable source of inspiration – it is visited by many birds feeding on our bird table, butterflies flitting joyously, and, bees galore 🐝 it’s simply wonderful to see and hear so many buzzing from one flower to another gathering pollen!
What could be more wonderful than this to inspire my art?! Well, the bees are forming on the paper! The wonderful @tworivershandmadepaper is the surface of choice, adds to the delightful fluffiness of the bee. @Rosemary&Co brushes and @winsor&newton paints and I’m off!
