It feels like ages since my last painting, Summer has flown and Autumn is defiantly here. I have spent the last few weeks flat out with my "job" as an illustrator, working on some illustrations with a very tight deadline. Having hit the deadline I rewarded myself with a painting workout. I have been planning this painting for a while, a corner of a greenhouse, with everything piled up ready for winter. I love the smell in greenhouses, warm earth, tar and string and I love the patterns made by the haphazard arrangement of pots and tools. I also like to be there as the watercolour washes gradually tighten up to reveal the shapes that I am trying to capture. Lastly but by no means least, I enjoy Autumn. The mists, the smells and the feeling of readying up for winter, the melancholia of it, beautiful!
