However, I just couldn't keep to the set task of still life and just using pencils; my friend Monsieur Fountain Pen (nickname - stylo) had an airing today. From a great book - can't remember what the title is but lent to me by Russell -pictures of lichen (one of my favourite things), a bit of seaweed and a rosehip.
I love working in ink. I think I'm scared to work in pencil, maybe because you can rub it out and correct mistakes (yeah, got work on that one too Emily). I will overcome this fear - let's keep going, but I'm going to have to do other things as well or I might go mad!
