A bit of colour

  1. Tree near Batherwycke – coloured pencils

2. Cliffs and sea near Eyemouth, Scotland

This time I was trying water colour pencils for the first time – not I think the orthodox technique, as I was using wet cotton wool to spread the colour a bit.

Dick the Bad

Richard III’s skeleton was found under a car park in Leicester. He died at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485. He has now been reinterred n Leicester cathedral. Whether he was really as bad as Shakespeare portrayed him remains a matter for much dispute.
