There’s an old lady who lives nearby and who wears the most vivid, the most colourful and most wonderful rainbow-coloured stripey tights! The rest of her clothes are ‘normal’ and conservative but the legs sticking out from the bottom of her mid-calf coats and dresses are rainbows. I love that she must just like them and doesn’t give a hoot about whether Victoria Beckham designed them or Cheryl Cole recommends them or Expose is showcasing them – or not! She just likes them. To be that comfortable in your own skin is a joy and a blessing so rock on lady! A friend’s little girl calls her Lulu Lollylegs which suits her perfectly. I hope that one day I will enjoy lollipop legs, too.
I mentioned that I am trying my hand at painting with watercolours? I am LOVING it. Spent a couple of evenings sketching and painting and find it so relaxing. I said I’d show my better pieces – well here is the first (only!) one I was pleased with. It’s a wet into wet technique which basically means letting the paints diffuse across and around the wet paper. It is loose and unstructured which is obviously very different from designing cut files in Illustrator. Hope you like!
