The joy of colour….

I know many of my friends in the States are having to deal with relentless snow and cold…..and here in the UK we are having to deal with relentless wind and rain!    

Given that it is Friday and that we probably all need a shot of colour in our lives, I am sharing three photographs I took during the warm summer months. 

I received my first digital camera eight years ago.   Up until that time, I had never really enjoyed photography because of the long process of getting film developed, and then finding that maybe there was one decent image in the whole lot.  

 My digital camera changed that for me…I now use it along with sketch books as a tool for my work. 

This image was pure luck.   I was walking along South Bank in London, where they had a beach hut display, and happened to spy this little girl standing in front of the perfect beach hut.   I just loved the way the colours and shapes all sang out together:)



I caught this little girl as I was wondering through Brighton.   Ice cream just happens to be my favourite food, and so I couldn’t resist this opportunity. 



This photograph of deck chairs on Brighton Pier, appealed to me because of the stripes and shadows made by people relaxing in the warm sunshine. 



I hope the colour in these images has brought some joy. 

Remember to check out the wonderful art school in Portugal where I will be giving a workshop in April..
