short days, long nights

I've been exploring colour!
I want to make pictures using colours I don't get to use in my commissioned work for children's books. Maybe it's the cold grey windy days and long dark nights affecting me...
I'm also enjoying exploring shapes, collage and layers.

It's been a while since I last posted something...
I've been looking at lots of things for inspiration!
I recently visited The Museum of Everything, a great museum in North London, crammed full of everything! It's a brilliant space, with lots to look at and interesting background information on all the artists. I loved it and hope to visit again soon.

I love this little creature made by Mary Fedden!

I've been enjoying wool and knitting.
Loop, a beautiful yarn shop in Islington.
I buy lots of wool, but sadly all I do is look at them. Maybe one day I will knit myself a great big woolly jumper :)

All these lovely colours makes me want to experiment with a different colour palette to my picture book work.
This is a (very badly taken at night) picture of some work in progress, a personal project inspired by "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy.
