Whale drawing

By Stowel Lake Farm

A few weeks ago I (Liz) was sitting around with some of the kids when Alex (who is 7) asked me if I could draw a blue whale. With pastels and paper right in front of me I could hardly refuse. So I drew my whale (he let me know when I missed fins and flippers) and then off he went and he has been drawing whales ever since – THE MOST BEAUTIFUL whales I have ever seen.
