It's been lovely to get out into the garden and make a few studies again.  I haven't drawn in the garden from life since last October, the sun was really warm yesterday, it felt like summer was on its way at last.

I've made studies of Mom's old stone cast animals and gnomes over the years, some of them are a little worse for wear, the tortoise above has lost its head but it's still recognisably a tortoise.

This time I'm disciplining myself to producing mainly ACEO sized studies, some I colour indoors after making the line drawing outside, but the 2 little ACEOs above are completed entirely plein air.
