Lt Bromhead colour detail

Just checking the details of Lt. Bromhead’s uniform epaulettes, then I can get this section of the painting finished.

New book added to BOOKS page

Bright and bold, this book will always be findable! It is 200 x 150mm, a good size for a sketchbook and with the usual top quality laid paper pages. This paper has a smooth side and a slightly textured side so is perfect for different drawing media. It’s great for writing on too, especially with a quality fountain pen. (Is there anyone besides me who still uses one?)

Uploaded here are the latest photos of my progress on VALOUR – a tribute to the men of the 24th awarded the Victoria Cross at Rorke’s Drift.

New book with beaded spine added to BOOKS page

Long stitch binding with beads


A lovely book to make: the colours calming and yet full of energy. I do enjoy beading the spines of my books – it adds to the pleasure I get from working with needle and thread.
