Quality Control Kitteh-Style

2 Jul

We’re cropping well from our allotment and here’s Little Ming doing a quality control inspection on our latest pick of broad beans. We’ve grown mainly Claudia Aquadulce that I planted last Autumn; I also tried Imperial Longpod and Red Epicure but they didn’t come to much. We pick the young leaves throughout the Spring because they make a delicious salad with the French sorrel and wild garlic that are in season at the same time and they’re also good in stir fries.  I reckon we’ll get one more bag off the plants.

Here’s another drawing I did at last week’s life drawing group. In keeping with the Renaissance techniques I’m trying to incorporate into my work, I used the whole sheet of paper [it was only A6] and filled it with little quick sketches from the same pose.

I used some handmade paper that I bought at the Tate Gallery shop a while back and coloured it with diluted sepia ink and drew with a dip pen and black Indian ink.

    Are these some of the as-soon-to-be-seen-on-TV Da Vinci sketches?

      No they’re more recent. I’ve been using the techniques I learned in life drawing and etching

      No, I posted them some time ago, but I’ve continued to use the techniques and these were done in life-drawing group a couple fo weeks ago 🙂

    Like the use of the hand-made paper.

      It’s a lovely one – very heavy and textured and was a reasonable price too, considering it was from the Tate.
