The RSC colour for May is red and so, as usual, I started by pulling all the reds from my scrap box and making a couple of little red dresden flowers.
I have been busy quilting the 'skirt' of my tablecloth this week and I have to say it is far more enjoyable than working on the baskets in the centre and I have left the flowers in hope that inspiration might strike. Sorry, no photograph yet but I promise for next week.
I have also been painting more watercolour fruit. I am happy with these two.
The next challenge is a clear object ie a glass of water. For this I need masking fluid and as the shops are still closed I am awaiting a delivery. Meanwhile I could get a few sketches made.
For those who mentioned it I can report that my poppy now has it's hanging sleeve and has been put safely away until November.
It's wild orchid season here and we have been out and about looking for nice examples to photograph (it's also tick season but we wont go into that!) Here are a few of my favourites.
First a Bee orchid
Sword leaved helleborine
So thats it for now - I am going to get my paints out! Have a good week.
