Doodling on the iPad is wonderful when something emerges out of all the rubbish scribbly stuff I do that gets deleted time and time again. Started with a few flowing lines which then developed into hills and the rest followed.

Ice Cream Shop

Drawn whilst sitting in the garden this afternoon. Looks like a place I'd like to visit one day!

Two sketches. The first was just me playing around with an idea, and the second is a quick sketch made in the garden.

It has taken a good week or so to decided how to illustrate a wonderful bloom of honeysuckle found whilst on a bike ride. This has worked, though it felt a rather complicated task and I had to simplify it as I wanted to move on.

The garden is looking good this year, although it is very dry. As usual, the hops are the fastest growing plants and are already a good six feet high. Vegetables are slowly getting going. I always say the garden is a late garden, I put it down to the conifers in neighbouring gardens. A lorry load of woodchip from some tree cutting nearby has enabled me to resurface the paths and have little left over (or rather, a lot). I've decided to let some rough edges and weeds exist this year to increase the biodiversity. Just occasionally I see some interesting insects and want to see what I can attract by leaving nature to do what it does best.
