apples galore!

we picked two huge bags of apples the other day.
in the kitchen we have made apple crumble, apple pies, apple and cinnamon teacake, apple juice, apple grated into salads, and baked whole apples stuffed with sultanas.
yum! ... in between eating and cooking, I found the time to paint a few as well!

an Iris, from imagination, as their season is long past here in England...
I have some apple drawings I will upload in the morning aswell. Really getting into the watercolours lately, dont think I will be taking them on the next leg of the holiday though, cutting down on weight in the backpacks...
so getting in as much as I can now!

garden friends...

here are some of the paintings I have been doing the last week or so... inspired by the farm animals around the village. the kids up the road have been painting with me sometimes and I think there's some nice characters developing in the faces, they come to life when you put the little eyes in I think.
