freelance illustrator, awkward ateliers and John Ruskin

This Sunday I had the privilege to be in a Forest near home. We set up a hammock to read, draw and relax. This best part of a freelance life  - the FREEDOM to move and work where and when we want. Besides I have a aesthetic approach to nature in my work. I really like to take my references strait from the source. Like Ruskin said:

"go to nature in all singleness of heart, and walk with her laboriously and trustingly, having no other thoughts but how best to penetrate her meaning, and remembering her instruction; rejecting nothing, selecting nothing, and scorning nothing . . . and rejoicing always in the truth"

"the imagination must be fed constantly by external nature"
John Ruskin
