I started a new sketchbook the day Boris Johnson told us to save lives “Stay at Home.” I shared the idea with as few friends and on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and the response was really great. So why not join me and start your “Stay at Home” sketchbook.
I love my sketchbooks, but this one is a little bit different.
Finding subjects to paint is no problem, I live in the beautiful Devon countryside and walk our puppy most days. The lane leading directly out of our hamlet is a perfect Devon hedge full of wonderful trees, wild flowers and burrows. So tons to draw and paint.
What’s a bit different is I felt the need to write down my concerns, those niggling worries, we are experiencing a Covid19 pandemic and it’s serious. On the back of some of my paintings I release those worries, concerns and niggling fears and I find it helps.
