I’m very pleased to be introducing my new bi-monthly art projects. Every other Friday I’ll be posting a project or prompt for you to take part in and have the opportunity to have your work featured on this blog. Submission details are at the end of this post.
This is such a wonderful time of year, the cold is beginning to recede and the brilliant sunshine enhances the fresh colours of the new buds and blossom. I have, therefore, chosen ‘Signs of Spring’ as the first project. Below are some photographs taken in the area around my home in Gloucestershire, England that I hope will inspire you on this topic. You can use any of my images or feel free to use your own.
Signs of spring out on Cleeve Hill in the Cotswolds
Hyacinths and celandines in the garden. I love the yellow and blue together.
Soft and subtle pussy willow with its beautiful mix of grey, green and blue.
And finally, some bright and cheery primulas.

- Email it to me as an attachment at firstname.lastname@example.org
