I have been busy again this week with pictures and cards.
The beach picture has pleased me as I wanted to try the less is more approach and use colour sparingly without making it look too drab – there is always the great temptation to overdo the painting -partly because I get it into my head that my clients might expect full dazzling colour. I’m realising now that the skill is to know when to stop. I also think that frequent breaks to check emails/facebook/mumsnet/the fridge are essential in giving your eyes a rest and returning with a refreshed view. Black and white work always makes my head spin if I sit over it for too long.
