I have been lucky enough to have another week off on holiday, this time in Italy where the weather was a little warmer than Bude. I stayed with my artist friend Amanda and her husband in their house in Umbria.
My sketch book became inspired by the things I saw. These dear little lizards shared the house.
and the fields were full of sunflowers.
Amanda and I had fun playing with mixed media techniques on the last day of my stay. Inspired by the green paper table mats from a meal earlier in the week which forms the basis of these 2 collages.
