GARDEN SKETCHBOOK - FEBRUARY ENTRY & TRUNCH CHURCH ROOF APPEAL
two separate images so should be able to enlarge them
Now we are in the middle of March, I realise I never posted my February entry in my garden sketchbook. On the left is a photo of some of the little irises I planted last year that came out at the same time as the daffodils. On the right I did a larger close up watercolour with a minimum amount of penwork afterwards of a single bloom to make a double spread in my book.
Today is bright and sunny and I have been up to a little village called Trunch, where they organise many musical and arty events to raise money for their St Botolph's church roof. Later in the year they are having an art exhibition together with a sculpture trail, so I drove up there this morning to sketch and take photos in the rectory garden and inside the church. I will probably prepare some pen and wash from these. .. but I have plenty of time thank goodness to think about that at a later date, seeing how my Spring art events are piling up. Will try to find time later in the week (??) to post part of the font I sketched and sections of the pulpit.
