This has been another week of to-ing and fro-ing between one thing and another. I returned from almost two weeks of travelling around on Monday night, notching up 1200 miles, only to travel south again early Friday morning. Consequently there has only been enough time to do a few sketches or small studies this week.
The weekend was spent with family in Derbyshire, with some really good sunny weather. I managed to gather some photographs for resource material and on Sunday spent the day in the garden doing these wee studies. Both the cup and apple study and the tree study is developed from a pencil sketch in one of my sketchbooks I had brought with me. The small landscape study was done en plein air looking out from the garden across the hills towards Thornsett. All were done in watercolour.
