Go Team GB Go!!!!

Have really got into the Olympics, its so exciting to watch all these amazing British athletes in so many sports. 3rd in the medals table! Its awe inspiring, all the hard work and commitment put in, amazing. have been very side tracked and unlike the athletes have not done a huge amount of work!!! I did go for a walk the other day to get some fresh air. I love the wild flowers, I saw some amazing teaseles, as well as grasses and cow parsley that had gone to seed.

I like these photographs where the subject is against the sky as it creates a good contrast making the shape of the plant really stand out. This is the way I like to paint my patterns, using clear bold images.

So next step is to do some drawing after seeing these lovely hedgerows.
