Welcome to year seven!
The year of RED!
Yes, I will be focusing on the colour red for the next 365 days, today I have made another version of yesterday's portrait of Debbie. This time referencing one of my favourite paintings - 'Man in a Red Turban' by Jan Van Eyck. It is now 'Woman in a Red Towel' and heralds a festival of red, rouge, cadmium, alizarin, rose, scarlet and so on....
Join me as I discover the power of red!

The final day of year six and Debbie's birthday - happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you.... I have of course wished her happy birthday in real life as well! A marvellous day has been had and a bottle of bubbly has been drunk. I wanted to end this year of drawings paintings and prints with a portrait of Debbie, she is the reason I started and am able to continue this little project.... Year seven begins tomorrow!

I love this plant, mostly for its purple underside but also the way it closes up after it has been watered or left out in the rain. It does this to get as much water to its roots as possible. Clever eh?
Only one day of this years daily doings, tomorrow is Debbie's birthday and the end of this years project so on Monday I begin year seven, yes seven. Which will see me indulge my love of the colour red for a whole year....my heart rate is building already!
