Ickworth sketches

IMG_7537IMG_7538

Here are a couple of sketches done at this fabulous property in Suffolk this Summer. They are on the most extraordinary handmade paper, leather bound and given to me by my wonderful husband, Stephen. I’m finding it best to use for ink sketches, as it’s not sized quite for watercolour – it seeps straight in like blotting paper! The texture is sublime though and I am enjoying filling its pages…

We are back at Ickworth today, though it’s grey and dismal out there. We like the stillness and the atmospherics of a little precipitation. Pac-a-macs and a flask at the ready and will post results later.
