I have made a little more time to paint this week. It actually got a little too warm working in the garden on one or two days mid afternoon during the week just gone. So, I hunted out the parasol and sat outside in the garden to sketch and paint for a while
The polyanthus and primroses are in full array at the moment – small approx 3 x 3”
I also undertook a light and shade exercise from a magazine article. A little cat sitting in a shaft of sunlight.
I thought this little study would make a nice card for a cat lover.
Then the following was done inside one evening as a special card for a family member who was a keen “birder”. Their special interest was the osprey for which they volunteered for “guard duty” on Rutland Water, where the osprey were reintroduced back in the 1990s.
The veg hopefully will be productive this year also. I have lots of seedlings up in pots. In fact, the courgettes, triffid like, have taken over one windowsill. As we are promised hard frosts the next few nights I dare not put them out, even under cover.
The temperature has dropped by a good ten degrees daytime today ….. oh the vagaries of the British climate …..
