Marking finished but...

I drafted the inner feather motif and got it all marked up yesterday.
I've found that even with white behind the markings (as opposed to a brown leather sofa) the colour is not as intense as I would have liked, so I'm going to go over it with another blue/green to liven it up.
And this is the darker tree peony, I just think it looks like it's come straight off a Chinese bit of porcelain. Apparently for centuries only Chinese Emperors were allowed to have these very
special plants.


  1. Your peony photo is beautiful. It looks like a tree peony flower.
