Hello everyone I hope you have had a good weekend. In a moment I will take you on my favourite walk around St Antony's Head a few miles from home. But first I wanted to show you these two little girls 'The Peppermint Twins' that you may remember from a while back. Well the last week or so I have been busy working on a new book that is to go with 'The Peppermint Twins' I have had to write the story and do some colour artwork for some of the spreads and the cover and work the rest of it up in pencil, as you can imagine that has taken all my time! I cannot show you any of that as it is hush, hush till after the main childrens book fair of the year this month where the publisher is hoping to get lots of sales lined up. I can say though that it is based on The Happy Crow! Well recently I have started to make some painted dolls of some of the characters I have been painting and the publisher saw them and wanted some Twins to take with him to the fair so here they are ready to post off tomorrow. They were fun to do and will hopefully attract some attention.
Yesterday was such a glorious day that we just couldn't stay indoors working so we decided to go for our favourite walk. St Antony's Head or Zone Point is owned by the National Trust and I think one of the most beautiful places in Cornwall. Its a circular walk that takes in both sides of the coastline of about 3 miles. The sky was the brightest blue and milky white round the edges if you know what I mean and it was 'only need a cardie' weather, the best in my opinion. I will not bore you with loads of captions to the photos just put your feet up and enjoy a three mile stroll from the comfort of your armchair!
Wasn't that lovely! Full of fresh air and a slight tingle on our cheeks we took a tired little doggie (she does at least twice the distance we do) home.
Have a great week, the weather looks set fair so get out there and enjoy!
