Colour from the season - Duck Egg green

Spring arrived yesterday – only for the day, but what a day!

Our neighbour has (what I think are) Black Indian Runner Ducks and this morning she gave us some eggs. Wow! Duck Egg blue, or green as it turned out because the egg has more yellow than blue as well as a percentage of black.

I thought it would be a simple notebook page, one egg and one colour, but no, an egg is not an easy thing to draw..!

Distracted lately because at last I've started some new designs for fabric, in their infancy, they've been buzzing around in my head for a few months. Inspired by the Ivy, Roses, the block repeat post...

...from my seasonal colour sample notebook.
