Letter U

Hi Everyone!
I hope you are all fine this week. We had a sunny Bank Holiday, but when we had a barbeque it was really cold and windy, despite the sun! It reminded me of seaside holidays in Yorkshire as a child. No wonder we Brits talk about the weather all the time, it changes so frequently we can't keep up with it!
I have finished my antibiotics this week, hooray and feeling much more human!
Lovely T tags from you all.

U is for Undergarments 


I  have drawn a Victorian washing line with undergarments hanging out to dry. I used my favourite Victorian fashion book for ideas on underclothing. I expect the Victorians would have hidden their unmentionables and not hung them out for all the world to see!
I used a water soluble graphite pencil, black fine liner and watercolour pencils on watercolour paper.

Now I am going to look at your U tags. U was quite a tricky one to do!

  1. Great drawing Jane. I think those Victorians were quite naughty sometimes so I bet they fluttered in the wind occasionally! X

  2. Brilliant drawing Jane - Saying they're pretty isn't unmentionable is it? Haha :0) Mo

  9. Such a beautiful drawing and they really give a feeling of blowing in the breeze - isn't it fantastic to be able to hang the washing outside to dry at last?! :o)
