We’re having some lovely weather here in South Devon this week, so yesterday I took myself out of the studio for an hour to get into the countryside. One of the reasons I decided to get a dog was to encourage me to get moving (I find it all too easy to sit on my bum all day drawing!) and I’m so lucky that I don’t have to go far to find somewhere beautiful.
And if I ever start to feel guilty about being away from my desk, I can call it a field trip. The project I’m working on requires me to draw lots of rural scenes and wildflowers, so it’s all in the name of research!
