Hermitage Artist Retreat: Day 1

So I'm here now and I'll be here until. I'm incredibly glad and grateful to be here . . . but I'm also a little out of sorts. My studio has always been such a cocoon of books, supplies, etc. that to be working without being swaddled in the silk threads of reference material is odd. Weird. But I'll manage. I have an alphabet to illustrate--The Pale Alphabet (created by this dame, Ashendene, at the bottom of the post)--and some bigger drawings to SKETCH out. (I never sketch out the compositions of drawings . . . I just start. This will be a new thing for me.)
