Today am setting up for tomorrow #Botanicalillustration   workshop with Jarnie at @Sketchbooksquirrel - so excited! We will be foraging around the garden for foliage and flowers to draw and then learn about colour techniques! This is for total beginners, so I am looking forward to taking part a bit - but I have to cook and help out!
