Autumn daze

I went to the park today armed with a new drawing pad and pastels. I will post the sketch I did another time but the stars of today’s show were definitely these teasels and ¬†Michaelmas daisies. The sun was warm and the Park seemed in a daze, or was it me? ?

Earlier I posted a photo of this in progress and here is the finished version. The canvas is jute and working on it has been a delightful experience as it won’t allow one to get too fiddly. The gravel garden was created ¬†last year and the landscaping is coming on nicely.
