I had forgotten that, every February, my friend Xanthe Berkeley and her friend Andrea celebrate colour by playing #colorcolourlovers on Instagram and on their blogs. It’s a fun way to brighten up what could otherwise be a very dull month.

This year, the “rules” are slightly different from previously:
Monday – purple
Tuesday – yellow
Wednesday – blue
Thursday – red
Friday – green
Sat – pink
Sun – orange

So here are my contributions to brighten up the last week of February – better late than never…!

Tuesday 21st – yellow
Raiding the archives for a photo of a yellow door in Pimlico – joining in rather late for a month of colour with @xantheb and @hulaseventy

Wednesday 22nd – Blue
I’ve been playing with paint again this week, after a bit of a break. I got myself a desk-top easel at the weekend, so it makes filming a lot easier, as well as painting.

Thursday 23rd – Red
More intuitive painting, brightening up a rather dull canvas – this time I managed to get my head in the way of the camera. Note to self…

Friday 24th – green
A bit of green (and some interesting shadows) – taken at a motorway service area!
