Collage therapy

A sketch a day…

I have bought myself a new sketchbook from a very talented local bookbinder Heather Dewick. My plan is to do a 30 minute drawing or painting in it everyday until it is full. Then I shall have to buy another sketchbook from Heather and continue until the end of the year!
