sea defences

How beautiful are these? They didn't work though and are being replaced further up the coast by a lot of concrete for £1.8m. Mind you I would be glad it was happening if I lived yards from the water, the sea is changing the landscape and will soon be taking the houses with it.
PS You can click on pics to see them more clearly.

Last of Summer?

Walking, sea, collecting, taking pics, sunshine, blues - my favourite kind of Saturday.

Burst is the Illustration Friday theme this week. I had drawn the background and was going to put dragonflies as the burst of colour. Then on Saturday I saw a Kingfisher at the harbour - a sudden burst of blue and there he was - magical. I've only seen him once before - last year - so he's very elusive.

A bit late but ...

Found that the Fiat 500 blog had featured the patterns I'd designed for their car! Exciting - but I came across this a couple of years late, well better late than never. My original post was here and I'm pleased to say that I did actually get one and I love it - although it would be even better with some patterns on it.

Nothing in nature is identical so I've resorted to duplicating a drawing! This is a pen and ink illustration - my collection of found items in a bowl - a nest of treasure.

My photographic record of our last 3 weekend walks. Lepe in the New Forest, the canal at Loxwood and the South Downs. I think they also show that Autumn has arrived here in the past week - strange how one minute it's summer then the atmosphere changes almost overnight and it feels very autumnal.
