Having time dedicated to painting and drawing is what I've been craving for the past few months but it has been so hard to fit anything else in apart from work and a little bit of play. As lucky as I am to have teaching as my day job, I've been desperate to have the time, energy and space to work on my own creative endeavors. I've been drawing and taking photographs in the Convent garden but I thought I would share an unfinished still life pencil drawing. At the moment, I love nothing more than sitting down with a pencil and working on tone and texture... oh have you seen Dane Lovett's beautiful still life paintings? He makes pastel colours that dreams are made of.
