Your drawing skills are superb. One thing I know. You have to be able to draw in order to paint. And these are so very well done. Love both sketches.

Hi Steph
THese are great sketches. I am particularly interested in the dragon kiln - a wood fired kiln?? My major at uni was ceramics and that's a great passion of mine. I am thinking of getting my hands on some clay now!
