Feathers and oak leaves



This is a drawing I did earlier this year. I went for a walk and collected all these objects from the ground. The oak leaves, the two feathers , lots of little brown hawthorn leaves and some red berries. When I arrived home I arranged them on the paper into a pleasing composition and then drew them and painted them in acrylic paint.
It was in my exhibition during the summer. It is now in Country Living magazine in the January 2008 . My first drawing to be published, but there is more to come.
