"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."

Augustus John, R.A.

and then a slightly darker grey tone.

So that's the clouds finished. Blue for the sky next.

Family Learning Project

Carly has been learning about Ancient Egypt at school and came home the other day with some homework. A family learning project, basically an opportunity for a competition to see which family can come up with the most impressive homework. Not one to resist such a challenge, I drew out a fairly simple 4 colour design and did all the carving while Carly did the printing.

Colour 1, a nice yellow.

Followed by Colour 2, orange.

Then Colour 3, blue.

Only the final black to go now.
