The cheese was vegan along with some vegan dip, garlic hummus, crackers, French bread, and some other goodies, which were washed down with some Lancashire tea. What a serendipitous tea it was too being that I was born in the Shire County of Lancashire which Michael never knew about. We don't have milk or sugar in our tea, or coffee for that matter, so Bradley and I were happy to find that the tea was not bitter and had a very nice flavour to boot. My non-vegan son, Aaron, made short work of those chocolates.
We had such a fun 'picnic'! Thank you very much for this lovely gift, Michael! It was the highlight of our day.
Now, onto the theme for this week's Scribble Picnic - FAIRIES.
I'm quite disappointed that I don't have a finished piece to show you this week. I was really behind the eight ball on this one. An idea didn't actually come to me until late last night and, a busy day today, didn't allow me any time to start on my sketch until after dinner.
For some reason, the theme didn't quite gel with me probably because fairies aren't really my thing as you will be able to tell from my sketch. hehe That said, I did love reading about fairies as a child though. I particularly loved stories by Enid Blyton and Hans Christian Andersen.
So, this was the initial sketch roughly done from imagination. I was thinking that I wanted to maybe do some nature fairies. I have a soft spot for daffodils as they were my favourite flower as a child. They are also the official flower for the month of March.
Okay...this is as far as I got but there is still A LOT more to do...more watercolours and detailing on what's already there, plus a background. I will post the final result in the coming days. Please excuse the poor quality images...unfortunately, given the late hour, I had to take them under artificial lighting, something I hate to do.
