In order to keep my illustrator skills sharp and experimenting, I'm doing a daily challenge that changes every month and adds to my Portfolio.
You'll find them recorded on my Instagram page, where you can see the latest challenge in my Stories.
Most challenges involve taking no more than 25 minutes on the day's contribution.
After Inktober, it's always a pleasure to return to full Colour Works! So for November I pulled out the trusty watercolour palette: using it to paint my daily likes and thoughts from the day.

The days are starting to look very grey. Buy a bouquet.

As a millennial, it feels rather strange to use an old software again after years of not; am so used to old software becoming obsolete!

A rare time of quiet in which to pick up the old crochet again. It'd been months!
Edinburgh Literary Salon organised a lovely talk at Waterstones for Book Week. Very glad I went.

Bouquet was starting to look a little sad. Rescued some of the flower heads to make a fragrant pot-pourri.

Been enjoying those Christmas tunes on the radio.
Snuck by the Christmas Market to meet my husband out of work with a surprise Bratwurst. A much needed treat.
