The theme for the Inspiration Avenue challenge this week was “colour”. At first my imagination conjured a mix of emerald green with a touch of sea green. The theme also inspired me to play with my new coloured ‘Pitt’ pens I’d been gifted at Christmas. However, out of all my new colours I could not find the shade of green I imagined. The closest colour was to be finally found amongst my children’s new coloured ‘Crayola Supertips’. I was drawn to two colours from my own pack and was also keen to use my new silver Pitt pen. I decided to try and draw a mandala that would incorporate all these colours and the above is the result. Unfortunately neither scanner nor camera picked out the true colours or metallic shine of the silver. If anyone has any recommendations for decent scanners I’d appreciate the advice.
For A River of Stones January challenge today I wrote:
Feathery choir: wood pigeon alto with Celtic flute timbre accompanied by soprano sparrows.
Whilst having a cranial osteopath treatment this afternoon, through the open skylight of the treatment room, I was serenaded by a selection of birds sat in the surrounding trees.
