I didn’t manage to sketch yesterday. We went to celebrate a friends birthday with a wonderful brunch. After the meal, we took the dogs out for another 5k walk under the sunny warm skies. After that, I started feeling ill and everything cascaded downhill from that point. Anyway, today I’m slowly getting back to normal and took the opportunity to pick a branch from one of our shrubs. I’ve also included an image so you can see how small the leaf buds actually are. The above drawing is about 3″x 4″ and done in the moleskine sketch book. I added a quick touch of soft pastels for color.

      Gluten poisoning. Not a fun thing for me! I just shouldn’t trust food from unknown sources. It causes me too many down days!
