Noticed the first daffodil spikes pushing through the snow and took a snapshot. This evening I made a sketch from the photo. Blue skies, longer days - soon we'll be able to smell that muddy almost warm earth. . .
Bought some new pens today: Sigma Microns to enable my stippling habit (including an 005 -.20 mm!) and a Sigma Brush for quick gesture sketches. Also ordered a new sketchbook - have only a couple of weeks left in my current little moleskine, and have decided to try a Fabriano, just to see what it is like to use a different size and type of book.
