Well so far so good with my daily drawing challenge. The last two pages are of thistles which I have taken from the images in the book I got the other day, Nature Notes of Edwardian Lady. After I had finished today's drawing I felt that the thistles seemed lost on the white page so I decided to add a wash of colour, which I then carried across to the previous days page. I love the subtlety of water colour paints. I have had my little pallet of Windsor and Newton water colours for many, many years. However, I think the time has come to replace some of the little pots as tonight I noticed I was scraping the bottom of the ultramarine blue and the sap green. I can feel a trip to the local art shop is called for.
