167. Refreshment

Faber Castell 1.7 HB pencil on
Handbook Travelogue Journal, 5" x 5"

Hi everyone. I haven't run away and I have been doing a lot of painting - walls! We've spent a good chunk of the last three weeks refurbishing our church so it's been all hands on deck, sometimes till late at night, getting our beautiful old building ship-shape. All the stained glass has been delicately cleaned, the wood cleaned, waxed and buffed and the building looks and smells wonderful.

I took time out with Az to do some drawing - our challenge was a glass of water and what better receptacle than these fascinatingly intricate glasses. Talk about a challenge! I thoroughly enjoyed it though. (I deliberately under-crop these images so you get a sense of my sketchbook page.)


  1. Absolutely outstanding, you've captured the shape and tones beautifully!!

  2. That's high praise from you, Azra. Thank you.
