Colour Collecting

It's been a gorgeous Autumn, and I have more snapshots to share than anyone would have the patience for - but I thought these colour-grabs, from an afternoon adventure to Sizergh Castle in the Lake District, might give a little insight into the simple things I find inspiration in.

Most of these are from a small vegetable garden in the castle grounds, overwhelmingly bursting with colour.  It's great to take inspiration from nature, and these small capsules of fine leafy curls and dusty textures will probably make their way into my work at some point.

So make sure your harddrives aren't completely full of selfies, and take the time to snap anything you think might inspire you in the future.  It's so great to have a collection of forgotten moments and objects that can spark ideas years down the line!


  1. Oh I've been to Sizergh Castle too! I liked the gardens / the apple trees :) I'd forgotten about that place.
    I really admire your work by the way. It's very feminine and soft. You always choose nice colours as well x

  2. Thanks very much Laura! Yes Sizergh is gorgeous, I love exploring the Lake District - so many little gems!

  3. I really liked this part of the article, with a nice and interesting topics have helped a lot of people who do not challenge things people should know.. You need more publicize this so many people who know about it are rare for people to know this... Success for you !!!

  4. Oh, I really wish autumn comes back soon so I can also be able to go to a picnic in the park-like with my family. I won’t even give it a second thought for giving my assignment to a cheap assignment writing servicecheap assignment writing service if my teacher assigns me one. I must say the picture you have taken has sure hyped me up for autumn.

  5. Oh, I've also visited Sizergh Castle! I enjoyed the gardens and apple trees:) I'd completely forgotten about that location. By the way, I truly appreciate your work. It has a really feminine and gentle feel to it. You have a good eye for colour as well x
