#097 Christchurch Church

While there are lots of colourful and bright days during the English 'weather year' you do get a lot of this stuff, some call it greyness. While I thrive on colour it is good to remember that colour does not just exist in the bright, pure, straight out of the tube hues but also in the subtle tones of an overcast day as seen out of your back window.

#096 Roller

I have had a bit of a play with my new little print set up this afternoon, not wholly successful nor was it wholly unsuccessful. I am shattered now though. Nurse, my pills and a fresh pillow if you would be so kind.

078 Post Box

I posted a picture today. Not in this post box because it didn't fit! I had to go the sorting office to find an A4 opening. Also note the initials 'GR' meaning this was installed in King George's reign.

Ps. if you don't follow me on twitter yet, you should! Because the 200th follower wins a print of the days digital painting that they followed. Make sense? My Twitter name is @DanYoungDaily see you there
