So this was the simple idea that was taking shape in my mind. The logistics of trying to take it to the next stage were difficult, but Dev went and found me some pre-gelliprinted pages, glue, scissors and coloured pencils, 'cushion-type desk-tray', PPP&P sketchbook …… and anything else I called for.
Not easy, but I managed this, and once again concentration helped with the pain.
The background colour is not quite true, it is really rather nice shades of sea-green/turquoise. I tore a rectangle of gelliprinted paper with the aid of a ruler (about 4" x 6") and stuck it to the sketchbook page. Then collaged on the cut pieces for the windmill petals and the leaves, with a little added coloured pencil decoration. Good enough for the first realisation of the idea, and one day I shall be able to take the idea further.
Very tired now and pain pretty bad, just had latest lot of pills and am going to fall into bed with my lovely hot-water bottle on my back. I love everything you are doing dear friends, even if I can't comment much. Thank you for your comments, they keep me going.
