When I’ve finished a project – such as the Dalesman nature diary that I sent off this afternoon – it’s such a relief to be able to create order out of chaos again and clear my desk . . . but, before I get started, surely I can spare half an hour to draw a corner of clutter.
This is drawn with a new pen, more of that later, with a rapid wash of watercolour added, just as information, rather than getting in to the light and shade.
