Happy Valentine’s

It’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow and I’m sure many couples will be planning something special. I will however, be spending some of the day with my partner, Neil. Weather permitting, we may go for a stroll in the countryside, then it will great to relax with a hot drink and a slice of cake in a splendid, quaint café. We don’t do the over-priced, restaurant-on-Valentine’s thing, as we find it a tad cheesy, being in the company of other, love-struck couples on Valentine’s day. Surely, as the whole idea of Valentine’s is to express your love for your partner, is that not better done in private?  Still, each to their own.

I’m sure you’ve seen lots of Valentine’s related images around. You can’t really escape them on T.V. & radio adverts, in shops, on the internet etc., so I thought I’d share with you some pretty and inspirational Valentine’s images.

When ever I look at flowers, I think of Spring. Yet it’s only round the corner, hurrah!!

On a recent illustration project, I’ve been painting flowers. As always before a new project, I collate research and I’ve gathered a few beautiful flower designs for some floral inspiration. Whether you love flowers like me and need to update your home (the clock and scented candle for example) or wardrobe (dress and clutch), or you simply like to look at different drawing styles & colour combinations, I’m sure these fabulous finds will excite your creative juices! We’re just not quite in the spring season, so I’ve kept to a sombre, winter colour palette, with:  soft, warm greys, spicy turmeric, turquoise blues, deep reds and black.
