I have been spending the last few days doing some much needed work in my sketchbook. This is something I am not particularly good at. I am good at doing work in them when I am working on a project, but find it harder to work ‘just for the sake of it’. This is probably due to the belief that I can’t draw. A belief sadly instilled in me at a young age by a series of art teachers. I have improved in confidence over the years but still find drawing with a needle and thread easier! These were all done using permanent drawing pen / pencil and watercolours (a medium I don’t use often).
