My yarn twiddling sabbatical has had it's usual effect and I'm now itching to pick up a paintbrush again. But there's way too much to do now and it will have to wait until I get back from England in the New Year.
In the meantime, here's a painterly fix from Trevor Lingard. Trevor, a countryman of mine, contacted me recently. He's got a new blog which is developing very nicely, and I especially enjoyed this watercolour demo featuring St Mark's Square, Venice.
