As a sketch it works fine - but I spent a little time puzzling this one out. I'm not sure the bottom right hand corner is working as well as I know you can do.

One of the things i noticed at the sketchbook show was how keen people were on buying sketches. It's certainly making me think twice about what I do my sketches on/in.

Olala, I love this modern approach .........

I like the very loose style!

thank you everyone :)

IRL it maybe works a little better in that corner Katherine - yes I find at our shows people like sketches.

anyone interested can see more by following the link to my sketchbook website from my main website below :)

Vivien - Even though I've seen this one before - it's always fresh to my eye. Lovely.

It is fresh and light - displays the lightness of poppy petals - nice sketch.
