Savoy cabbage.

Oh dear I am not terribly happy with the colour that the scanner has come up with, there actually is a lot darker green and a lot less yellow.
things dont always go to plan.
I have been buying these wonderful cabbages at our farmers market, photographing or painting and then eating them! Delicious, lightly cooked with butter and a touch of soy sauce.
I have not had a lot of time for sketching, a lot more walking and sewing going on as you will see from my other blog here.
the weather is thank goodness damp and cold and we are slowly getting a few more millimeters of rain, but it is slow and then we get the odd hot day and a north wind which dries it all out again. Here we like to keep being damp until at least October so the paddocks have time to grow and be turned into silage or hay.
We are also in the midst of foaling, so far 2 fillies and 2 colts and 1 still born, lots more to come.
Life is never dull, but sometimes my sketching gets put on hold.
