Photographic inspiration for new patterns...

I went on a wander round the harbour today gathering inspiration and reference photos for my new prints/patterns. I was really pleased with all the bright colours I found.

Dream boat

So,I don't think I've mentioned this on my blog yet, although Im sure most of my followers are aware, that I'm currently living on a lovely boat in Bristol! So, (maybe somewhat unsurprisingly), I've recently been sketching some boats.I have to admit these are ones I saw on holiday but my plan is to draw lots of Bristolian boats and barges and maybe use the pattern for my deck-chairs now instead of my wild flower pattern,it somehow now seems more appropriate. Im going to wait and see what the pattern turns out like first though and then make a decision. I really need to work on my backgrounds as white is just not a practical colour for outdoor furniture!
I've also set myself the rather ambitious project of replacing all the curtains on the boat,eeeek!
