We dined on our first garden fresh broad beans last night. After I painted these this morning, I ate them my favourite way - raw.
I've wasted an extraordinary amount of time lately struggling with a watercolour of a paeony. Pink is not my favourite colour but the bloom came from two gorgeous bunches given to me by friends. I didn't give enough thought to the palette or the background and no matter what I did the flower looked pasted on. Finally I threw it in a bathtub of water, gave it a good scrubbing and finished it off with dry watercolour pencils. My first Mixed Media which I present with mixed feelings.
