Inspired by David Hockney’s masterwork, Arrival of Spring in Woldgate East Yorkshire 2011 (twenty eleven) I decided to draw something each day of April to mark the arrival of spring here in my yard. Meanwhile, David Hockney is doing the same in Normandy (not inspired by me!). Read about it and see some of his iPad drawings here.
Late yesterday afternoon I got bundled up and went outside to try and sketch the one green thing in my yard, poking up from the manure and mulch. Not a great result, so I tried again indoors, referring to the first sketch and making up a scene. It’s a start.
