I thought I would share some photos of my beloved pop-up tent this week. Whenever the weather gets sunny I put it up in the garden and use it as an outdoor studio.

Cupar Arts Eden started last Saturday and finished today, showcasing a hotbed of talent throughout Fife with a relaxed and friendly vibe.
Three drawings this week: a Peruvian gourd which rattles when shaken, an enamel doggy box which is partner to the one I drew last week, and a depiction of the inside of a favourite bowl, but flattened out. I worked by turning the bowl in my hand and allowing the pattern to run straight in my drawing.
A week of rather dismal weather kept me indoors most days, so I decided to draw some of my favourite objects around the house. I discovered it is really hard to draw toys! Here are two Peruvian dolls my friend brought back for me from a stay in Peru, a little enamel box painted with a charming Spaniel, the most adorable little loved-up 1950s Merrythought bear (with bells in his ears!), and carved and painted wooden cats and a dog which sit on a shelf with their legs hanging over the edge. I hope you enjoy my shared treasures!
Thanks for visiting, see you next week!
