Spring has sprung

Pencil, Lexington grey water-brush and fountain pen, watercolour, white Gelly Roll pen, blue Uni Posca brush pen,  A5 – various times

A double page spread from last weekend, when the weather was fine, the clocks went forward and everyone was out and about. The street scene is a view down North Parade Buildings near Sally Lunn’s (“the oldest house in Bath, 1482”), using coloured paper for the buildings and a handy light-blue opaque brush-pen for the sky. The other page was sketched in the Botanical Gardens, with a magnolia flower in full bloom, my daughter sketching plants, an elderly couple resting with their walking sticks, and a man waiting for his mum to wake up so they can finish their walk (it was Mothering Sunday).

It’s lovely to have the longer, lighter, drier, warmer days at last, happy Spring!
