The small pleasure I got from these two little drawings in the last couple of months is reassuring in a year where any pleasure has been in short supply.
The alder was drawn at Riverside Park in Macclesfield, where I met up with a couple of other people for a socially distanced sketching morning. The book I used had some pages with ready prepared backgrounds, which I find easier to draw on than pristine white paper. This background is water soluble felt tip.
The drawing at Broad Haven was a second attempt. I had been trying to draw something else and was not happy with it. I was on my way home and sat in the sun for a few minutes to dry my feet off. I saw the rocks with the low sun and got out my drawing things. I was pleased to go home with a page filled. This was done on a smooth Khadi paper which is rather nice and I have not used before. It was a new book so I am doubly pleased to have a first page used.
