our cups emptied, the day emptied.

I'm not even really sure what this is, but I thought if I didn't let it surface from the confines of my sketchbook, it might never get out.  In a fortnight long struggle to muster up something for my 'respond-to-something-you've-read' summer project, this is the best I could come up with.  It in no way expresses just how beautiful this book is (seriously, read it).  So it's back to the drawing board for me!

I'm almost thinking it would be better to draw from something I'm less attached to...what do you think?


  1. this is lovely dawn! you're definately on the right track. i think you are expressing how beautiful this book is, and i think a series of these type of responses with quite symbolic objects would be doing it justice :) i've had a struggle too and my approach has taken a very sad turn, so i think you should focus positively on the beauty!xx

  2. Do you think? Thank you Vanessa...I'm just finding it to be a real headache! And I'm getting a bit lazy, trying to shortcut on drawings! I shall wait and see what today brings...!

    A sad turn...? :( I've loved your latest blog posts, all of your work is looking really lovely. xxx
