A few weeks ago, we had particularly nice weather. Whenever possible, drawing from real life is great practice to understand proportion, light and create realistic colours. You learn so much more, but it does have its challenges.
During lockdown I’ve been taking inspiration from what’s around me, namely the garden since that’s the only thing I can see. The weather has also been so nice that sitting outside over the Easter weekend felt like such a treat. The garden was a big part of why we left our London flat before the lockdown (I was self-isolating beforehand with suspected Covid-19 – very mild symptoms though!) I honestly feel so grateful that we have this. I feel for those without green spaces and in confined spaces. Just under 2 weeks in our small London flat was plenty.
