Humpty and the Windmill
This is a pen and ink drawing project that I had begun before Christmas, when I was ill with the bronchitis, but refusing to give in and simply be ill. The conseqence of this was that when I looked again at my work when I was well again, I discovered a fundamental flaw in the composition, plus that I was thoroughly bored with the project. Not good, and thankfully, very unusual for me. So, I began again, and began again, etc, and was still stuck, and increasingly frustrated.
Then one morning I had the bright idea of actually making the cleaner bottle windmill, which miraculously solved my artist's block! Now I am pleased with how the drawing has turned out, and will be happily adding to my portfolio.
