I had a great inspirational afternoon at the Jungle Sketching workshop. It's been years since I've sat down and actually drawn something, so this was a great introduction for me to put pen to paper and realise I could still do it! Such a lovely environment created by Merel, and a lovely group of ladies.

Would highly recommend!
