I love the smell of pencil in the morning

A last minute commission from Derwent Pencils landed in my Inbox last month. Quite exciting for an ex-pat Brit to be commissioned by the oldest pencil company in England! So away went the paints and out came the pencil sharpener again.

It was also rather a pleasant change to be welcomed into the studio by the smell of freshly sharpened pencil again. And the new tinted charcoal pencils that Derwent sent me are really lovely to work with. I will have to try to find some time (and space!) to get back to drawing again. The painting gear has quite swamped my drawing table again

Oh dear, I feel a Spring Clean coming on.
Thankfully it is definitely now Spring!

The scout spotted my purple pencil drawing online and asked for something similar using their new tinted charcoal pencils. It was quite a challenge working from a print of my own work, rather than from a photo or the real thing.
