Packages in the post

Blue

Hmm. Blue is the prompt for today, and actually, I find it a difficult colour with which to work. Once I get going it isn't too bad - as you can see from my current work in progress, but it's the one colour that really causes me a lot of angst. I thought I'd share… Continue reading Blue
