Drawing in the Woods

I love walking, mushroom picking, painting and drawing in woods. I LOVE woods!

Whenever I go back to the Czech Republic I spend as much time as I can in woods.

Woods smell good and they are quiet, peaceful places to be. I get lots of ideas for books just being there.IMG_2608

If it was just up to me I would have a picture of woods in every one of my books!IMG_7172

My publisher won’t allow me. Enough is enough they say.

O.k. …I can’t blame them.IMG_7189Here are a couple of illustrations and sketches that haven’t made it into the books….yet.
