Lazy Sunday afternoons

Preparing the subject. Take one wet Sunday afternoon, invite in-laws over. Add one large roast dinner with a drop of wine, light log fire, wait fifteen minutes and hey presto! A drawing!

Oh, the devious things you will do to get a good sketch! Really wonderful!

And I admire that you didn't succumb to the wiles of roast, wine, fire and rain, but stayed awake to make the sketch!

Ah Pippa, the sacrifices we make for our art :-)

Absolutely fabulous sketch...I recognise that Sunday mood well.

This is SO beautiful, Stephen. I'm getting quite worried about how good you are.

Seriously, a very sensitive and beautiful sketch.

Fabulous sketch, and a wonderful idea. Now, if only my in-laws lived nearby, and if only I were a better cook....

Thanks for your encouraging comments - I felt a little guilty posting this one!
Pippa - I fell asleep after I sketched, it is sooo tiring!
Anita - thank you for your comment, I'm learning so much from your site!
Margaret - you always say such nice things and I'm not sure I deserve them.
Andrea - be worried! But know that your continued support is humbling and I was choked when you added me to your site! Truly
Christie - you are so lucky!!!! :-)
