    Love all the soft pastels you’re using at the moment Karin. Gorgeous subjects too!

  • Thank you so much Mel, this was so much bolder in colour during the painting process, but I’m very much toning them down as I go, the pastels just somehow seem much more appropriate, tho i love bold colours too :) xx

    well, what do i say kt..this is so lovely…it has a slightly different feel, and the more subdued colours give it real childlike, dreaminess. i imagine picking up an old nursery rhyme book from my childhood and seeing something just like this inside. really wonderful.

  • aw, thank you lk…so pleased you like it, and i take that as a very special compliment too :) cf’s :)
