More botanical sketching, this time in our back garden. First some new leaves sprouting from a shiny hazel trunk, then Japanese and Chinese wisteria flowers compared. The final sketch is a similar wisteria comparison study, but was done when I’d just started sketching four years ago and was using extra-extra-fine nibbed fountain pens with black ink. When I compare the two pictures the main changes are speed (due to daily practise, but also better materials), a greater appreciation of the importance of curves, and the development of a more confident line (helped by using thicker nibs). Remind me and I’ll do another comparison in 2019!
