I love these things: when I first arrived in Italy with Lesley, I ate artichokes in one form or other every day for three weeks. AND they are so beautiful . . .
Also my mate Terry & his wife, Sue bought me some watercolour pencils for Xmas. So today I thought I’d try them out. Good fun. Especially since ~I’ve been working almost entirely in B&W for the last couple of months. . . .trying to get these illustrations right for the book . . . .
