ON THE ALLOTMENT

i'm pleased to report that day three has been a delight!


today we were in cley-next-the-sea...a favourite spot + even happier to be there in the sunshine! after a morning scout around the streets...both me + mum decided to settle down for the day at the village allotments. the 1st time i've been drawn to draw there (you know what i mean!) they just looked so beautiful this year...dahlias...sweet peas...vegetables of every description + lots of quirky sheds...which i worked on in my sketchbook...

we finished the day with a little review of the group's work. it is so lovely to see the collection of pieces set side by side...today it was well + truly apparent that everyone had been very content in the environment. i guess it just shows when you are comfortable in + inspired by what surrounds you. icing on the cake? a takeaway cup of earl grey tea + sharing a slice of cherry coconut slice from the local food shop...feeling weathered + pleased with what we got up to!

back soon with a few more notes...xxx

I like your allotment sketches - the squint corrugated fence is a wonderful touch - it looks like it can hardly contain the exuberance of the garden
