Advent Day 13

The nomad wagon is set to go.........

well....... despite having a bad dose of frostbite,  hopefully a long drive will help to unbung her frozen taps blinds and anything else I missed on my pre trip check.

Still busy with Christmas prep, but thoroughly enjoying it, so can't offer any other distraction except the daily sketch.

This beautiful leathel thorny acanthus thistle has given me such a challenge, it's way too complicated for a photographic study so I have to settle for rhythmic abstract.

I'm loving making use of my Fabriano pastel journal, bought for me by my DH many years ago and now at last I have time to play in it's wonderful bright thick pages.

I see that your 'nomad wagon' is fully equipped for the festive season! Love that tiny tree.
Your drawings are so good and you are quite right about acanthus being lethal - even through gardening gloves - I've recently cut our spent stems down.
