Colour collective - Sap green

My latest drawing obsession is kokeshi dolls. They're so cute! and they have so many accessories and different kimonos and hairstyles... They're definitely fun to style and to imagine.  This is a piece I did for the colour collective challenge. I must confess sap green is not my favourite shade of green but it's good to push myself out of my comfort zone once in a while. It makes me happy to thing that spring is just around the corner and that the trees will blossom soon.

Colour collective - Ultramarine

Someone in twitter had the fantastic idea of creating the colour collective challenge. Last week's colour was ultramarine which as it happens is one of my favourite colours. I have lots of clothes that colour - are there ultramarine flowers?


Fernando the Fox

I really don't know why, but I looked at this fox and I just knew it was called Fernando. That's the kind of day I've had.

The letter F

The lunar new year is in a month's time and around here there're lots of red decorations everywhere. I think it's an auspicious colour for the Chinese, but I'm not sure so don't take my word for it. It's going to be the year of the sheep, though, not the year of the cat. I wish there was a year of the cat - they have the year of the tiger but you will agree with me that cats and tigers are very different. Anyway, here's a flowery cat for the letter F, a theme proposed by the guys of daily doodle on twitter.
