Drawing of an Iris

I have to admit that one of my favourite artistic past times is drawing!  I simply love the simplicity of a nice heavy weight good quality cartridge paper, a set of good graphite pencils, which have all the grades from soft to hard. A putty eraser, a decent pencil sharpener and a fine relaxing location to work in.  The day I started on my drawing was a fine sunny day, I was fortunate enough to be able to have a studio overlooking the sea. It was luxury to be at peace and to very happily spend my afternoon drawing. While every now and then I could gaze up and look out at the view which gave me a fine view of the sea that stretched out for miles.  So while I was not drawing the sea that day I was still able to enjoy and be near to the sea!

Hoping that you will find a peaceful afternoon to create some artwork!  Best wishes Caroline
