Yesterday a friend dropped in and brought me two ornamental cabbages from the florist up the road. They are just stunning with deep greens, then subtle yellow greens and pink in the centre. I decided for my first drawing of them I would do only one of them in Matisse Bright Green ink.
I am NOT promising to stick to inks while drawing these later in the week. I have never had any of these before – in fact have rarely seen them. They’re just crying out for coloured pencils, so I plan to draw them that way also when I get the chance. I won’t be counting those in my 75-day challenge of course, but having all those beautiful colours to look at and not to draw them is just beyond me.
Sunny again today, so at last I remembered to get the camera out and photograph the giveaway book. I have a few different views of it so I’ll give you a taster soon.
