Penciled Blooms!

 Hello To Everyone,  hope all is well with you today and that your week is going fine so far.

I've been reading on your blogs that you've been having some grand weather, ours has been really quite changeable, but noticeably cooler, suits me though.

As I type this I have Alistair in shouting in my ear at the leader in the Tour di France race. It is an exciting one as it's an other mountain race and the gradient for the finish is punishing, I really don't know where these guys get the stamina to get to the end of the race. Mind you there is no social distancing with the spectators lol.

Thank you for your lovely comments on my last post and a warm welcome to Jackie who has clicked the Follow button, thank you Jackie and I hope you will manage to pop in when you can.

I have a finished page today;



 This is a fabulous book with so many beautiful illustrations, difficult to choose really. 

I coloured with Prismacolour pencils and some gel pens and coloured the background with chalk pastels, which was a bit tricksy getting in between the pencils, I also put sound Pixi Dust on to some of the images. Hope you like it.

Well, that's me done for today, hoping to get a bit of knitting in before getting the dinner together, so take care of yourselves and see you soon,

What a neat illustration with the pencils growing into flowers! I bet that encouraged you to use a lot of colors. Fun!
I had no idea the Tour de France was on! It is usually in June or July right? Hope you have a good day!
