Spikey winter

The spikey (or maybe it was because it was cold) appearance of plants against a still frozen lake, The gardens at Hellens Manor Herefordshire once again gave me the most interesting subjects to draw/paint.

Hellens Manor, by the frozen lake

Although cold, there was a wonderful stillness in the air and almost eerie silence, and perfect conditions for painting outside. A mixture of acrylic inks, then biro drawing and watercolour washes.

A cold day, lots of frost and crackles everywhere....

Chilly wintery drawing
