Life drawing, spring sunshine and sleeping Trolls...

Well, this weeks life drawing didn't get off to a great start when I arrived late and missed all the 2 minute warm ups! So I didn't quite settle into it and still feel like I haven't quite got my hand in again with it yet...

She was a great model and did some lovely poses, but I couldn't quite do her justice this week...
Still, its nice to be doing life drawing again regardless of the results!

I seem to be posting a lot of walks so far, but the warm spring weather seems such a treat after the long winter, it's hard to resist!
When I walked this way in March I heard an owl call unexpectantly in the wood at noon, flute-like, soft through trees still bare limbed. Today we heard woodpeckers rat-tatatating, and constant birdsong - caws and croaks, flutes and chittiks, many layered melodies of lilting laughter...
The woods are wakening, buds greening, even butterflies today. I should know the name of this plant but it has slipped my mind for now!

We followed deer slots all through the woods, me, Red Riding Hood and a black witch's cat...

Then back home again over the Troll's bridge, quickly before our wellies woke him to scold at the sun!

  1. Lovely photographs of your walk and the gorgeous butterfly. I saw my first butterfly today, lots of big bees waking up and we have a hedgehog in the garden most nights.Signs it is warming up.
    Thank you for your comment, maybe one day I will have a book, you can have yours signed. I did have some of my drawings in Country Living magazine a while back. Glad you like them.


I would love to hear your comments, please type away!
