spindle berries

I haven't been drawing much lately - I go through phases like this but on Sunday I picked some spindle berries - the colour of these berries is amazing, bright pink with orange seeds. Seeing them on the mantlepiece each day I decided I must draw them before they died. I scanned in the finished drawing but it wasn't as free as I'd have liked, so I roughly drew in the shapes for colour and the result is below. A bit different from how I normally work.

Three beautiful pictures, all same and different.

That is a very nice shade of pink; I'm very particular as to which pinks I like!

What's the story behind the little bird carving?

I don't want to disappoint you Marianna but ... the bird carving is from John Lewis!!!
