‘Sprig’ by Jane Hildreth



Permanent fine liner, watercolour red pencil, washable liner and water on paper. 20 x 25cms. Worked produced on Monday evening Wellbeing Life drawing class with Susannah and Anne

This was drawn on the evening of 22/2/2021. I had received some flowers for my birthday; they were anonymously given so very intriguing. I especially liked the small cluster of leaves. My first attempt was realistic and the drawing/painting evolved from this using a more abstract ‘Chinese’ palate, which has now formed part of my own investigation into a tree I am studying. I feel the speed I worked at shows here and the vibrant blended background works well. Such encouragement from Susannah and Anne. Learning to relax more with my work because of them.
