Session: Plants/Foliage in the Garden or House Hold Plants (dependant on your broadband signal!!)

We’ll be doing lots of quick drawings of plants and bits and bobs things from the garden, the idea is to keep things moving, a virtual sketchbook walk!

If its good weather and you can take your smartphone or other device outside in the garden, that’s great.

If not, don’t worry, bring some things into the house, and gather some houseplants together like these…
