Crickey, it’s been an awfully long time since I participated in Illustration Friday
How nice to be back in the fray!
The word this week was ‘rescue’.


‘She would no longer pretend to be a herbivore.’

A small (9cm x 14cm) picture is for Illustration Friday. This weeks word is ‘pretend’.

Have a good weekend!

A little painting for Illustration Friday.
The word this week was ‘save’.

For Illustration Friday.


Rabbit approached the anomaly with caution… Blackbird seemed less afraid.

The word for Illustration Friday this week is ‘citrus’.
I fancied getting my water-colours and pencils out for this one…
