Attempting to draw for at least 10 minutes / day in 2017

Hand-carved spoon by Anna Casserley, charcoal

Learning - charcoal is not the best medium for this scale of drawing

Fabric hexagons ( grandmother’s flower garden blocks), pencil

Learning- a drawing always looks more accurate after you have not looked at it for at least 30 mins. Always have the eraser to hand before starting to draw.

Wax block and needle threader, pencil

Learning - go over the margin/ border of the page if you have to

Pincushion  ( a favourite, bought at the Dansel Gallery many years ago)- pencil, watercolour crayon, pen, calligraphy ink

Learning- try more colour and don’t be afraid of ink
