I am working hard this week, lecturing has begun and the Hertford Vintage Fayre is on this Saturday. Many illustrations underway and the beginnings of a lovely collection of greeting cards. Its always good to have a deadline and remind oneself what can be achieved in a week.
A detail from a new illustration of my street. It includes studies of the birds I regularly see in my garden and postal messages from across the sea. It is part of a series of new work I am creating for the Hertford Vintage Fayre in early February. The process of drawing provides a welcome relief from lecture preparation. A happy way to spend my evening.
A new project is underway; a new miniature world. Derived from some initial ideas but now there is much playing and experimentation. I love the feeling of not quite knowing where something is going and allowing the process to guide the way. One never knows what one might find. A delightful way to spend my afternoon.
Yellow is light with a wavelength of 570–580 nanometres. The colour lemon yellow is situated between 570 and 575 nm at the cooler end of the frequency range. Lemon yellow is naturally associated with its namesake, the citrus fruit, but was not developed as a commercial pigment until the early 1830s. Lemon yellow is cool, sharp and refreshing, it is an exciting and energetic colour which will rarely sit quietly.
