Extract from my sketchbook. This is an oil pastel sketch made soon after the tulip petals had fallen. As you can see, it is drawn over two pages. I chose not to crop the image but show the authenticity of the decision making experience when drawing from life outside. I guess I could have picked the tulip stem and take it indoors but then where is the fun in that? Colour and speed of recording would have been altered by the fact of a more relaxed drawing experience.
