About a week ago I took a branch of flower quince inside to force it to blossom early. Almost like a cut flower but with tree branches. It’s a great way to bring some spring inside and the children enjoyed watching the buds grow and bloom. I’m wishing I hadn’t worked this one as much, it feels a bit dull and muddy to me. (the shine is because I am incredibly impatient, another thing that works against me!)
I have recently bought a new fountain pen (more on that in a future post) to draw with. It’s taken some time getting used to it, but am falling in love with its lines. Here’s a drawing I did of my dinner last night.
They make my drawings feel a bit more lively (probably just an illusion). Here is the same coloured in. Maybe you’ll get a better idea of what I actually ate.
One of my favourite Korean dishes, sticky rice with bulgogi, kimchi, and broccoli. The bowl is a pot my husband made a few years back with a bright teal glaze inside. Working on keeping my colours “juicy” and fresh and trying not to overwork it.
