It's Out At Last!

I am dreadful at keeping secrets, and whilst I was able to tell people that this set would have my illustrations on it, I wasn't able to show them.  The set is out this month and I received two sample tins in the post today - haven't they done a great job?

On the side of each tin is my name - how cool is that!
These were such fun to paint - the colours were so bright and I really enjoyed working with them.
Plus the subject matter was right up my street, especially....
...this one. 

Unlike other products I have been asked to illustrate for, this set is one that I use an awful lot - I just love the colours and the ease of use.  I'm painting myself a t-shirt with them this week funnily enough, as they are colourfast when painted on fabric.

This certainly brightened up what was a rather awful morning!

Your illustrations are amazing, what a thrill! I have a set of these Inktense pencils myself and the colours are amazing. I think they're just made for Kingfishers with their showy plumage but I don't have your talent!

They are beautifully, I love the colours too. I'm sure any artist will aspire to paint just like you.. actually you probably hope not quite like you :-) , but the paintings are beautiful. Well done and congratulations...
