I recently took a trip up the Northumberland coast with my family. I fell in love with the wild expansive beaches and the magical castles perching on hilltops around every corner.
My sketchbook was out frequently - and sometimes the kids joined in too!
The sheer scale of the almost empty beaches meant I made use of my new enormous sketchbook.
And the wildlife! We were overwhelmed by the number of birds and butterflies - the kids’ favourites were the puffins on the Farne Islands (although they were less keen on the choppy boat ride to get there!). And it was hastily sketching the puffins on Inner Farne that inspired the latest addition to our personalised book stamp collection - the Puffin Ex Libris (available to order now).
Did you know that I’ve been drawing every single day for almost 5 years? (1st September is my drawing anniversary). You can follow my scribblings via my personal instagram account - @jennybloomfield - where I post a drawing every day.
