I’m back πŸ™‚

I’ve had a lovely month off, did some edinburgh festival stuff, visited family, went camping and generally had a lot of fun. I’ve never taken a month off before, so this was a bit of an experiment- taking all my holidays at once- but i certainly didn’t get bored!

The last weekend of my holidays my mind turned back to work stuff, and i found myself wondering if i was still up for it- long days! Tight schedules! responsibilities! But of course i was completely fine and enjoyed myself as soon as i was back. I can see how having a long break can mess with you, though, you start doubting yourself…

First smiling face through the door was Simon, we had started a phoenix sleeve last time, and worked on the background today. We will be bringing the piece up and around the tribal at the top at a later stage, we just want to see the colour ina nd judge how far it should go over the shoulder once it’s a bit more complete.

the colours will be more muted yellows, oranges and browns, with some pale blues as accents

next in was Ross, last time i started the geisha but forgot to take a photo, so here’s one now, and we’ve added some clouds and flowers. This piece will be mostly black and grey

and i finished David’s tiger and samurai piece, david had decided on a colour for his tiger- blue! Why not πŸ™‚

very sorry about these photos. terrible.

and i finished david’s phoenix, considering this was originally going to be a mostly black and grey piece, we managed to get some serious colours in there! A change of plan is always a possibility with projects like this, and that’s just fine. it’s an organic process..
