Today, Derwent sent me their updated list of pencils which contain no animal products. Luckily very few of their pencils do so it’s easy to avoid those.

No drawing over the weekend as it was my husband’s birthday. Today, Milo is on the easel; he’s at the stage of stepping back, stepping in, draw a line 0.5mm long, step back, step in, blend a patch 1mm x 1mm…I actually like this stage but it does take a lot of stepping back and forth. I think Milo’s ready to be on the wall while I work on something else so I can look at him and spot the bits which need tweaking.
