Now cos I can't totally leave work alone, I went first thing and put the finishing touches to a 'Pin the Tail on The Discosaur' ready for use in the zoo's Dino Party Room this weekend..it's proper daft (more on this when I have some snaps), and it didn't really feel like work.
The rest of my day revolved around buying and trying out watercolour pencils (finished work good/ location sketching bad) whilst drinking coffee, then falling asleep under a tree, then doing some walking and sketching
Due to recent storms there are still a lot of branches lying about. By far the most interesting at a glance is a huge branch from a willow tree, which twists and curls like smoke - I've been meaning to draw it for ages. Not sure this is a spectator sport, but what the hey - I thoroughly enjoyed myself doing these!
My local park has some lovely trees in it, so I plan to do some more sketching there, although the next chance I get I may have to do some work overcoming my greatest artistic bete noire - the horse.
