Alison's Moly

This is not quite all of it but I think you get the idea. It's also not really the colours so use your imagination.

The Red Wheelbarrow

For my second entry in Jan's book (theme Red/Read) I thought of the William Carlos Williams' poem "The Red Wheelbarrow." I googled it to be sure I had all the words correct and one of the top results was a bookstore in Paris with the same name. It seemed too good to be true. I also added some chickens from one of my daughter's favorite books "Click Clack Moo: Cows That Type."

Marker, Ink and watercolor.

Kerry's Moly in Canberra

Canberra doesn't really have a 'big' anything - except the egos up at Parliament House. So I decided to enjoy some plein air sketching directly into someone else's book - very scary - at the Botanic Gardens. It's Spring and there is so much to see - not to scale. Two lizards busy sunning themselves got included. Lots of people stopped to have a look - it's sad how many people think that talent from birth is required. It's such a delight what one can do with just a little box of watercolour paints, a water-brush and a few watercolour pencils. This goes off to Jan, now.

My Pages in Jan's Book

*Finally*................ I am finished doing my delicious 'Red / Read Spread' in Jan's Moly.
This book has been one of my favourites, because of the theme or perhaps
the fact that I got to do so much more with the extra pages I 'm not certain, but I have
had a ball. I am pleased with the overall look of my work, however, my hand writing
lets me down it is terribly shoddy....eeek.
Hope you LIKE Jan!

Sorry to post each picture separately but it seems the only way I can do it to enable them to enlarge when clicked on.
