Summertime in London brings the annual RA summer show which we love to go to, and this year it was the prints and the wintery pictures that I loved so much...Bryanston Square by Eileen Hogan, the one with the tree drawn in charcoal on watercolour paper was spectacular - Roy Wright, as was the amazing landscape of the battle of the unicorns, all made with wire armature and elastoplast!
Tea at the Wolsey afterwards is part of the treat!

scanning in sketches

Trying to find a way to use drawings for logos, by scanning the sketches in and then working on them in photoshop and then illustrator...thought it would be easy but it seems to be quite difficult to keep the line looking hand drawn...

Its great, take a look.....oh can use the link top right of this page to see some beautiful paintings and work....

Hampton Court Flower show

Beautiful flowers at the Hampton Court flower show this year but only if you planted red cabbages amongst the petunias! Growing your own veggies and running allotments, geese and all was a big theme this year....

soft tomatoes

Just when you think that you might be going senile and you cannot cope because there is so much to do, make some fabric tomatoes! Really bonkers and completely useless, they are a good way of using left over fabric! ....and I do have alot of that!
