Dear me, I didn't think I had been away for that long, things have changed on G+. Anyway, it isn't quite Friday, but I will post now as I am bound to forget again tomorrow. There is a new drawing to show :-)
https://shadedfaces.wordpress.com/2016/08/25/sunshine/ or here for German readers https://schattengestalten.wordpress.com/2016/08/25/sonnenschein/
I hope you enjoy.

I cut what will probably be the last bunch of flowers from the garden, before yesterday's storm hit. Not too bad for mid November, but that's it now till spring. I will have to fall back on archives for pictures until then. Or become inventive ;-)

Long time no see, but the gardening season is nearing its end (of sorts, anyway) so maybe I will manage to post more regularly again for a little while.
Have a great weekend, all!

Introduction
Mostly, I draw people and animals from photographs, but I like making things in general. And I love my garden and watching everything grow.

Hm, I got my first DSLR not long ago. Just a basic entry level one. But it's getting put to plenty use and some of the results will turn up here for folk to review and tell me where I'm going wrong. There's lots to learn!

Here are some of my attempts:
