I've been bound again to desk and computer, and absolutely longing to get out into the fabulous spring weather and its sights and smells. I finished the next stage of my work this morning and didn't have to go far to find a ready-made bouquet to sketch, right outside the dining room window. I thought I'd practice a bit with my Inktense pencils before taking them out for a walk... started out quite tentatively, then when I realised I was not going to capture every bud and blossom, got looser and scribblier. Although the colours are fairly restricted, I think they'll be good for laying down quick impressions of a scene. Now, for a week I think, I'm freeeeeeee!!!
