Sniffle Sniffle

garden shelving

I also didn't help matters by sitting outside drawing in the afternoon. I was lulled by the sunshine into thinking it was warm, but then the sun went in and the wind came on and it was FREEZING! I was half way through the drawing above though, so had to carry on (dedication eh?).

I'll have to try a different make, but in the meantime, because I was using non-waterproof, things got a little messy with the garden shelving, so I tidied up a little in Photoshop afterwards.

This is the before and after:
