Here I've been doing some mixed-media sketchbook work combining watercolours with oil pastels to create a still life study.
Whilst I was out there and trying to get myself into Chelsea Flower Show mode I took a turn round the garden with my camera to see what I could capture on film. The garden seems to have suddenly sprung to life with everything becoming much greener and more colourful after such a hard winter and cold soggy spring.

All this sudden and unfamiliar sunshine proved a bit too much for Butty (Buttercup) so she decided to retire to her penthouse in the shade for a bit of a snooze.
