Garden Shears (with small repair) (pencil 2013 A2)
This is another drawing from Helen Gilbart’s drawing classes in Walberswick. It’s a fairly straightforward drawing of an old pair of garden shears except the cross shape – I think – makes it more interesting, as does the small piece of cloth, the only colour in this monochrome drawing, stuck in the handle on the right. I like to think that it demonstrates the charm and character of the everyday object. It was bought by a horticulturalist in London.
