River Thames Competition entry

My goodness what a busy few days I've had, been rushing about all over the place! The to-do list is finally starting to shorten, so that's rather gratifying. I think in future I need to pace myself a bit better though, monday finished with me crashing from exhaustion at about 7.30 pm and not stirring 'til morning! When your body really needs rest, it find ways of forcing you to do so (i.e., it completely ceases to function, ha-ha). Anyhow I allowed myself an evening off to recuperate and am feeling much perkier today... the lovely sunshine helped too!

Speaking of days spent outside... this is my entry for the River Thames Competition. It was a pretty tight deadline and I had to practically chain myself to my desk three days straight to get it done (and even then I only had 10 minutes to spare!) I'm pretty happy with what I achieved in such a short space of time, although of course there are loads of improvements I would have liked to have made... still, I think it shows the energy and activity of the river well. It was a challenge to draw people (they are not my usual subjects) but I think it's something need to get more confident at doing. I'll have to go pay the river a visit this summer. Although, I won't promise to go kayaking on it!

Hope you have all been well, thanks for reading!
