Agood days painting !

painting and painting and more painting ! added the final touches to the spring celebration print of yesterdayand then got busy painting parts of several staying power today ! Here is one of the new blocks,loosely modelled on a tree of life. Really pleased with the sky washes that seem to have quite a lot of atmosphere and depth to them.
 The inspiration behind this was also an area on my daily walk where you are surrounded by tall oak trees and the bird song at the moment is incredible ! Sometimes my work seems to be heading very strongly towards the old ladybird book /railway poster kind of illustrations !!!


  1. really beautiful mandy. the birds are very vocal at the moment aren't they?

  2. So beautiful, Mandy. This really captures the feeling of the world outside my window at the moment.
