Rose Hips

My goodness - so, so long since I posted here.

I've been doing some sketching recently, inspired by a couple of online courses courtesy of Sketchbook Skool and Jane LaFazio. Trying to find my 'style' so experimenting a lot.

This is a study of rose hips from my garden in part coloured, part left just ink sketch. I once saw a book of sketches by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the Scottish architect and designer who died in the early 20th century, and it contained some beautiful sketches of flowers in ink, only partly coloured and I fell in love with them. I even translated one of them into an embroidery years ago but where that is now I can't think. I'll have to see if I can find it although I suspect it wasn't stored properly and has suffered for it.
