Having fun with colour

This peeling paint on a wooden shed at Pythouse Kitchen Gardens caught my eye and will make a great texture.

I’ve been busy making some changes to the website in recent months but decided to take some time out this morning to make a colour palette of one of the Calla Lily’s I took a few months ago. I have been asked how I make them so I will be putting together a tutorial in the next few days.

Vibrant colours of an alstromeria display at RHS Chelsea Flower show last month.

Some bright agate to brighten up a Friday afternoon.

I love the rich, warm colour and tones of old bricks revealing character and depth.

Feeling a bit chilly today so dug out an image I took of the Mendenhall Glacier in Alaska last September and made it into a blue colour palette.

A cute 6 week old baby Morelet’s Crocodile taken on a workshop at the Cotswold Wildlife Park a few years ago. It’s probably a little bigger now 🙂 I love all the different shades of brown on its body, the 6 shades below are just a few of them.

What’s not to love this time of year than the fragrance from a freshly cut bunch of sweet-peas.

The thorax of a Giant Pomponia I was shooting in the studio recently.
