A lovely busy long weekend and some OK weather. We walked to Tyneham Village and down to Worbarrow Bay. Just coming out of the village there was this fantastic carpet of wild garlic in the woods. Tyneham Village was requisitioned in WW2 in the 1943 to prepare for the D-Day landings and all the villagers had to leave. The land is still used by the army as a firing range so the villagers were never able to return. For many years now the range walks are open at weekends and school holidays so we are fortunate to go to such a lovely place. Despite being a firing range it is otherwise very unspoilt and wildlife abounds.
We have been here so often but never when the garlic is in flower so it was such a surprise.
Then on to tangles. Grids are not exactly my favorite so it is challenging! I decided to try my new Graphik Line Painter pens. They act a very little bit like water colours when wet and then dry permanently so both apron and table are needed!
Using a wet brush to move the colour added some of the shading plus graphite pencil when dry. the result is a bit weird but fun to do.
Thanks for passing by.
