Sketching and threads

Learning to draw and developing the habit of drawing is something I now get to practise a lot. In the confines of an airline seat I get about 5 hours a week to keep my elbows in tight and draw. It can be challenging for a left-hander - which is why I try to sit window seat, port side whenever possible. They say that the practice of practise makes perfect - and I know it to be true  - and luckily for me there would appear to be a few more flights in the goddess yet - the next step will be to thread sketch these as a further part of exploring the elements and principles of art in the context of textiles.

These sketches are lovely, Ali! Can't wait to see them in textile form!
