Sketchbook Snippets



A few snippets from my 'Flo' journal filled with CP Bockingford paper using Daniel Smith watercolours and ink.



There's nothing quite like the smell and taste of English strawberries! Yum!



I love the little flowers my youngest brings in from walks down the drove.

Have you noticed how prawns always taste better when YOU remove their shells!


Preparation for a studio space INSIDE the house...Very exciting! This means I'll no longer have to make the choice of leaving my family in the evenings to go outside to the studio. I'll be able to paint into the early hours as well as filling my journal pages throughout the day! Yippee!

Anita, these are all wonderful! I really like your page layout style.

Ooh, a new studio! Do tell! I am loving my new space sooooo much. I can't even tell you how much. Now all I need is a cot in there and I could live in my studio forever...

I can't wait to hear about your plans!

Love that prawn! I'm a little squeamish about picking them apart, though freshly-peeled prawns are so juicy and flavoursome. Their beady little eyes are also quite cute. :) Your entry has brought back my own childhood memories of seafood: cockles in Cornwall!

These are all lovely Anita! I love the flower... looks like a buttercup? How does the "old wives tale" go.... if you hold a buttercup flower under your chin and the yellow reflects up it means you like butter. It's works for me-- I love butter!
