Studies and ideas
Its very satisfying to be outdoors just drawing for the fun of it.  In a sense its like keeping a visual diary, a simple record of time and place.  The "ideas" are experiments which give me the opportunity to use a full range of mediums, ranging from watercolour to pen and ink, or whatever suggests itself along the way.  For example the lilies and goldfish oil sketch developed into the otter and lilies using gold leaf on a wooden panel.
