lady Katie's birthday...


...it was inspector marmalade's birthday the other day. this is what i painted for her as a present. the dictionary page has the word marmalade on it and a little conversation about her dancing to candyman by Christina whatsherface. i like painting on these pages though sometimes the pencil doesn't draw too well on the paint. i think gouache may work better but i don't like gouache that much as it is kind of has a funny texture about it that i cant explain. i am hoping to get the paints out again this week. i have found an art shop in Manchester-yay and i have found another haberdashery type place in one of them big department stores that might do for now. i got some more small paintbrushes and what i consider a big thick one for a change. i like dinky like paint brushes. i find making up simple conversations interesting and fun. i admire the simple humour of the royle family that used to be on telly.
