Accidental Colour Pallets

When I working on an illustration, I'm not careful about contaminating my colours. Blue in the yellow, brown in the red, orange in the green. Sometimes if I pick up a colour by mistake, I actually enjoy these little accidents, they can create colour pallets I wouldn't of considered before. I don't like to use too many colours, I like to mix them myself

The Lincoln Artists' Market

It was the Lincoln Artists' Market yesterday, and although it was freezing temperatures (I had to make a call for emergency thermal socks, or I'd be at risk of losing a toe), and the English drizzle was threatening to ruin our work, it was actually a pretty good turn out. The Hill and the rain didn't stop those keen to snap up a treasure, coming to browse all the beautifully stocked stalls, located at the Castle Gate in Lincoln. If you missed the market this time, the next one will be on the 7th of April. I won't be there again until May the 5th (hopefully the sun will be shining, and there won't be a need for emergency thermal socks). So there's more opportunity to purchase original artwork, or beautifully crafted items. hope to see you there!

Bird Bath

Shaking her pretty blue tail feathers, and singing her morning song during a refreshing bath; she's unaware of a growing audience. The flock of admirers push to get to the front, in hope to get a better peek of this bird of paradise. She's like the Marilyn Monroe of the feathered world,  a complete enigma.

This is one of the designs featured on cards that will be sold at the Lincoln Artists Market. I thought they would be lovely for Mothers day.
