Walk One Hundred and Fifty – Courtyard garden

courtyard
I wish that I could have given my Australian friends some of the rain we had today. At one point (unfortunately while Hugo was cycling home from school) the rain was so torrential there was a small river running down the High Street. I did wonder how I was going to draw without wrecking a sketchbook. Fortunately it completely cleared at about six so, as I had children to feed and chauffeur to sea cadets, I tried to see how well I could draw this little garden at Pound Farm in as short a time as possible. I’m striving to learn what to leave out.

Delightfully squiggley - I am far too careful - I'll have to shut my eyes, I think.

Have you tried blind contours? They can liberate the squiggle in you.
