Thanks so much for all the lovely comments about the garden. We have worked hard on it and, considering the weather, it's come on very well. I just said to Clive that we worked to a budget when doing up the house but the garden happened in dribs and drabs. I bet if we add all the garden stuff up it would be a real shock.
I have been following up some ideas from my holiday sketchbook. I am hooked on the idea of 'looking through' - in particular places seen at the end of dark streets, or looking up to features above the normal sight line.
The piece above is an initial pencil sketch - a quick drawing following on from a photo. Did this one on the boat.
