Recently though I've been wondering about the possibility of facing my fears and exploring drawing (perhaps more as a means to help with other crafting and making endeavours), so yesterday in that spirit I went on my first ever sketching trip - and was extremely grateful to have gentle and patient guidance from a very kind friend :)
Having the beautiful sketchbook and cover certainly made me feel more at home, and we had a lovely time - warm and dry in a nice cafe as the November rain poured outside... .
We tried a few different drawing exercises to help me feel less scared (!) - here's my favourite result - drawn holding the very end of the pen only!
It's meant to be the Scott monument and George Hotel behind trees - but to be honest I'm just pleased I dared to try!
