"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Last job of this year or first of the new

Putting aside the Trawler print temporarily, I've begun work on my redesigned cover for the Huddersfield Bird Report. Delivery promised for the first week of January. No pressure then!! This needs to go better than my last couple of prints have.

First colour down is a darkish cream for the clouds, followed by a rather garish pink which will only show in three areas of the print; the birds beak, a ring around its eye and its legs and feet.

Looks like the Oystercatcher is going very well, look forward to seeing the finished print.
