A winding road…

cycling, Tour de France
The winding road, £250

The autumn is coming to a close – in parts of the UK, the winter has begun even… Here in Leicestershire, it’s all gone a bit dark and gloomy, damp and murky… So to cheer up a bit, here’s a reminder of the Tour de France, and one of my favourite subjects, a lovely long peloton following a lovely winding road – all sunshine, trees and peace, what could be better?

Have a good weekend, and if you have sunshine and your bike, go out enjoy them while you can! 🙂

We’ve had some gorgeous days lately as Autumn comes to a close. The forecast for the weekend promises an icy wind straight from the North Pole – certainly felt a bit colder on my walk just now but the sunshine and blue skies are  beautiful and there’s still warmth in the breeze… at least for today!

Experiments

Hello! It’s a time of year when things are drawing to a close but it’s a time when I like to look back over recent work and experiment with new ideas. I’ve been working on a few things lately with several themes in mind but all linked by the thread of people drawn together to see or witness something in a crowd, either willingly or forced. Not quite sure where these will go but hopefully all lines of enquiry will lead to something worthwhile in time. Here are a few of my experiments:

Pretty in pink

My second post that ties in with the Festival of Flowers blog. A great idea and very inspiring. Find out more – and take part, on http://festivalofflowers.wordpress.com/, (or click the logo below). It was one of those perfect late summer days yesterday, so I took my pens and watercolours into the garden and made some drawings. The two I liked best were of the Japanese anemone, which is so delicate. Unlike the hotter-toned flowers that blaze at this time, the anemone gently leads the garden towards Autumn. Gorgeous! Here are my drawings:
