I’m sketching the flowers of a Cornish garden in preparation for a series of paintings I’ve been asked to do.
Sketching is important to me. It allows me to learn to observe the subject, to learn about it’s shape, its line and how they work on a flat surface. It gives me time to absorb these things so that when I come to painting I can do so without hesitation. I like to work quickly.
