tired eyes...

...are getting very achy sore and so is poor old susie scanner. she is very old now and does not like living on the roll out desk shelf. she wants to scan at 100 dpi but i ask her kindly to scan at 400 dpi and she struggles. the colours that you see you see on these pictures look different from the ones in the sketchbook as i have had to adjust the contrast and levels i potatochop after scanning. i may try photographing the next page to see what the colours will look like then. it has rained more than a few drops over the last four days. a lot more and i got caught in it on Wednesday when i was out in town so there was no observational drawing to be done as i was soaking wet. the bees and the fish are appearing on nearly every page as i just cant help drawing them.
