Winter colours for a willow wreath

If you can believe it, I slept till 11am this morning. Hooray for jet lag! And by the time I woke up, I only had about an hour with Robbie till he had to leave for the rest of the day. So alone for…

Drawing challenge: The Key

I took a little time to think about this one. I discussed it with Robbie, who’s imagination is wilder and more wonderful than anyone I know, and he suggested a colour wheel. Then we somehow got to a bunch of colourful budgies around a…

The Unexpected, Joke’s drawing challenge
