Daffodils and nettles

Here are the next couple of pages of my natural world sketchbook/journal, daffodils from the garden, and white dead nettle (Lamium album) from next to the cricket field here in the village.

The long shadows

Had a lovely afternoon out a couple of weeks ago at Wimpole Hall. In fact, the weather was so good that I decided to save the house and gardens for another day, and went for a wander around the parkland. I especially liked the mature trees – still leafless in the early spring, casting their long shadows in the late afternoon sunshine… I’ve put these in a chillier, more wintry setting…

The look...

Hello again! A new small piece from me, mixed media, of the cat, giving me 'the look...'

Down in a deep dark dell sat an old cow munching a beanstalk

Just having fun playing with this one!

Watercolour, ink and a bit of pastel, A4. If you're wondering about the title, there is an explanation... it was a sentence used by my old Latin teacher many years ago to teach us about dactyls and spondees - poetic feet...
