Yesterday afternoon, the girls and I popped into our village. It was nice to make the most of the dry weather. There are only a handful of shops, three being charity shops. I purchased just one item, a book from the local charity shop. A beautifully illustrated Children's nursery rhyme book by Brian Wildsmith a UK born artist. Until now, I hadn't heard of him, so I did a search on Google and found out a bit and browsed images from his other books. His passion for colour is evident and he seems to have been an influence for those in illustration.
