These ‘Larger than Life’ Parrots are finally near completion, just a tidy up and then off to be scanned.


I managed quite a bit more leaf work on this “larger than Life’ Artichoke but it is very painstaking.

What a lovely surprise, the gang from the Solihull Coloured Pencil Academy turned up on the stand!

Let’s hope Art in Action comes back soon.
