Margaretann Bennett

I always find inspiration here
Last month a friend described me as a 'keeper of stuff'. I have scrapbooks full of cuttings. In the case of Margaretann Bennett I photocopy the cards she sends me for tonal research!

In search of inspiration:
My John Virtue book, you can read about him here
Pics from Mark Johnston catalogues here
Hannah Cole landscape colours here
Suggestions for my limited palette gratefully received.

Sunday Lunch

My Open Studio has had only a handful of visitors. But all have come specially, some from quite a distance, which is great. We have had fabulous conversations and even stopped for lunch. It was a bit nippy, before it started pouring with rain...
