This is one of my Christmas card designs for this year - it's from a photo I've been admiring for a long time from Paint my Photo (link to site on the side bar) and was taken by Alison Ventura. I decided to paint her using just one colour, my favourite indigo and then splattered some white gouache around the hair to give a snowy effect. I hope you like her and think she's appropriate for a Christmas card.
Yesterday we were out walking again and ended up in the rain yet again, but we're determined to get our fitness back up after our illnesses which means when our day off comes we have to just go for it, whatever the weather. We did Snowdon yesterday, the highest mountain in Wales and England and we got very wet and very cold, our waterproof jackets both failed on us but then I realised that I'd left the arm vents open on my jacket so it was letting the rain right through duh!!!
Off out for another walk tomorrow to the Remembrance Service on the top of Great Gable, hopefully it will stay dry!
